Clinical Evidence for Technological Innovations: Alternative Study Designs
Tuesday, Feb. 22, 12-1 p.m.
In February and March 2022, NL SUPPORT will be hosting a Research Design Series, featuring weekly webinars from guest speakers on various quantitative and qualitative research topics.
Quantitative methods will be covered in February, and qualitative methods in March. The series is intended for students, researchers, patient partners and other professionals who have an interest in and/or would like to learn more about health research methodology.
The rapidly changing technological landscape, as well as many other factors, commonly renders strong forms of clinical evidence, such as randomized controlled trials, ineffective or inappropriate for technological innovations targeting clinical populations. The result is that many innovations that hold significant promise fail to translate to clinical practice or to market. In this webinar, Dr. Stephen Czarnuch will discuss the current landscape of innovations targeting disability and rehabilitation, including current practices for clinical evidence involving these technological innovations, the emerging emphasis on alternative forms of clinical evidence, and alternative study designs (e.g, technology experiments, single-subject research designs, pragmatic trials).
