Mind The Gap NIH Webinar Series: Stepped Wedge Cluster Randomized Designs for Disease Prevention Research

July 11 @ 11:00 am - 12:00 pm

About This Webinar 

The stepped wedge cluster randomized design has seen a rapid increase in popularity over the past decade. It is different than the conventional parallel arm cluster randomized design in that all clusters (e.g., communities, schools, or hospitals), rather than half, receive the intervention. This presentation will:

  • Explain the unique characteristics of the stepped wedge cluster randomized design and its implications for sample size calculation and analysis.
  • Discuss the strengths and weaknesses of stepped wedge design compared to traditional designs.

Can’t be there? A recording of this webinar will be available approximately one week after the session. You can view the full archive of previous Mind the Gap webinars on the NIH Office of Disease Prevention website
