Embedded Pragmatic Clinical Trials of Therapeutic A vs. B Interventions Workshop
May 16, 2018 @ 8:00 am - 4:15 pm
About This Event
Organizing Committee: Adrian Hernandez & Richard Platt (Co-Chairs), Laura Dember, Leslie Derr, Susan Huang, Catherine Meyers, Wendy Weber and Dave Wendler
This one-day workshop will explore challenges and strategies for planning and implementing embedded pragmatic clinical trials (PCT) that compare two or more therapeutic medical regimens. Pragmatic trials differ from traditional clinical trials, as they test interventions or practices delivered in real-world settings. If conducted within integrated health care systems, embedded PCT can leverage existing infrastructure to answer important clinical questions in a cost-effective manner. They can also bridge the critical gap between clinical evidence, practice and policy in health care delivery.
