Oxford University Honorary Posdoctoral Researcher Karolina Wartolowska will present various types of study design she has used in trials of treatments for chronic pain. She will also discuss why blinding is important and why a placebo control may be necessary, even in surgical trials.

This talk is being held as part of the Introduction to Study Design and Research Methods module in the MSc in Evidence-Based Health Care, but members of the public are welcome to attend free of charge.
