Would you like a better grasp on the clinical methodology process? The CTSI would like to announce the summer 2014 Clinical Trial Design Seminar Series. This is a valuable research resource being offered to faculty, students, and relevant staff at all CTSI partnering institutions. The series is intended to introduce individuals to clinical trials methodology and to assist those who wish to evaluate and interpret published reports of trials.
This series will focus on the design and development phases of clinical trials, recruitment techniques, data collection and data quality issues, assessment of adverse effects, participant adherence, data monitoring, sample size requirements, techniques of survival analysis, reporting and interpretation of results, and multi-site studies. The series is directed by Timothy McAuliffe, PhD in collaboration with Amit Gode, MD, MPH. The curriculum includes dynamic presentations from experts, and hands-on clinical trial design activities.
The series is being offered over the course of 9 weeks, and will be held at the Medical College of Wisconsin. The schedule will be as follows:
