Inhalt The workshops will be instructed by PD Dr. med. Lars G. Hemkens and Perrine Janiaud, PhD, DKF Basel.

Real-world evidence (RWE) for decision-making is increasingly recognized as essential for optimal patient care. Accordingly, the importance of RWE for the implementation of more complex behavioral interventions in routine care is also increasing. Conventional randomized trials, also known as explanatory trials as traditionally used for drug approval, often have characteristics that make them useless for such decision making. This course introduces and extends the concept of pragmatic trials to support decision making in practice, with a focus on complex behavioral interventions.

The course provides a basic introduction to the concepts, historical foundations, and philosophy of pragmatic clinical trial design. Recent developments in pragmatic trial design, including new technologies and routinely collected data, will also be explained. You will learn to make optimal design decisions and understand the implications of those decisions, such as selection of eligibility criteria, recruitment strategies, controls, adherence, measurement and follow-up intensity, selection of primary outcomes, and concepts for analytic approaches. You will gain a solid understanding of how to design a clinical trial as randomized assessment of treatment choices that is best suited to guide the implementation of a novel behavioral intervention in usual care.

The course is highly interactive, intensive, and experiential and requires some preparatory self-study.
