September 23, 2019: NIH Collaboratory Seeks Feedback on the Living Textbook

The NIH Collaboratory Coordinating Center launched an online survey to collect feedback from clinical investigators, healthcare system partners, and the broader research community about the Living Textbook of Pragmatic Clinical Trials. Responses to the survey will help the Coordinating Center enhance its resources for users interested in pragmatic research.

“We are eager to receive feedback on our signature resource, the Living Textbook,” said Dr. Kevin Weinfurt, co–principal investigator of the NIH Collaboratory Coordinating Center. “This feedback will help us achieve our goal of better enabling researchers to build partnerships with healthcare systems and transform how clinical research is conducted.”

The purpose of the Living Textbook, the NIH Collaboratory’s publicly available online resource at, is to share expert consensus regarding standard approaches, best practices, and special considerations in the design, conduct, and reporting of pragmatic clinical trials. The Living Textbook also provides information about the NIH Collaboratory program, its Demonstration Projects, and related initiatives.

The online survey will remain open until October 31, 2019.
