Key Points

Discussion Themes

How can we harmonize the different ideas about what it is to be “pragmatic” for NIH study sections, IRBs, and DSMB reviews? For example, if your DSMB isn’t knowledgeable about PCTs, you could end up with a very explanatory trial.

A willingness to share imperfections is an important part of learning and helps the clinical trial ecosystem evolve.

An important future topic would be how the NIH Collaboratory and PCORnet fit together.
