Webinars are interactive seminars conducted over the internet. The CCTS, often in partnership with other centers or departments, provides viewing venues as a resource to the UAB research community. Webinars are usually held in the Shelby Interdisciplinary Research Building. Contact the CCTS with questions.
Seminar full. Location Shelby 515.
June 20. The CCTS, Center for Outcomes and Effectiveness Research and Education; Comprehensive Arthritis, Musculoskeletal and Autoimmunity Center; and the Comprensive Cancer Center are co-sponsoring Introduction to Adaptive Clinical Trial Designs presented by the Public Responsibility in Medicine and Research (PRIM&R). Adaptive clinical trial designs (trials in which key trial components are modified during the conduct of the trial, and in response to information that accrues within the trial) have the potential to improve the efficiency and likelihood of success for clinical trials, in both exploratory and confirmatory settings.
The purpose of this presentation is to
1) provide an introduction to this method with conceptual principles, and
2) describe experience in the design and implementation of adaptive clinical trials.
A case study of a trial in development will be presented to tangibly illustrate concepts and invite questions.
