January 24, 2017: New Online NIH Course on Pragmatic and Group-Randomized Trials

The National Institutes of Health’s Office of Disease Prevention (ODP) has released a free, self-paced online course on designing and analyzing pragmatic and group-randomized trials. The course, which is presented by ODP Director Dr. David Murray, includes a series of seven video presentations, each lasting approximately 25-35 minutes, plus slide sets, reference materials, and guided activities.

The course is designed for faculty, fellows, and graduate students who have had some training in the basics of research design and regression analysis. The course features multiple examples drawn from NIH Collaboratory Demonstration Projects, including the Strategies and Opportunities to Stop Colorectal Cancer (STOP-CRC), Collaborative Care for Chronic Pain in Primary Care (PPACT), Trauma Survivors Outcomes and Support (TSOS), and Improving Chronic Disease Management with Pieces (ICD-PIECES) trials.
