Welcome to your source for training materials on how to design, conduct, and disseminate embedded pragmatic clinical trials (ePCTs). These materials reflect the knowledge, insight, and best practices acquired by the NIH Collaboratory program and its ePCT Demonstration Projects. The resources are being shared with the research community to provide guidance about building partnerships with health systems and overcoming the challenges of conducting pragmatic research. We hope you find this information useful in implementing ePCTs.
We encourage use of these training materials and ask that credit be given to the NIH Health Care Systems Research Collaboratory. For more information, visit the section on How to Cite the Living Textbook.
Drs. Lesley Curtis and Wendy Weber of the NIH Collaboratory discuss highlights from the inaugural ePCT Training Workshop and plans for making more training resources available in the future.
