Making trials more efficient: Trial Forge and how you can help

Professor Shaun Treweek, Professor of Health Services Research, Health Services Research Unit, University of Aberdeen

Rewley House, Monday 26 June 2017, 17:30 – 18:30

Trials are important; very often they are also inefficient. Trial Forge (http://trialforge.org) aims to improve trial efficiency by identifying and then filling gaps in trial methods research. Coordination and collaboration are key: letting a thousand flowers bloom is all very well but it does mean that evidence to support trial decisions is patchy and accumulates very slowly. In addition to introducing Trial Forge, the talk will suggest ways in which you can contribute to it.

This talk is part of the Clinical Trial Management module, which is part of the MSc in Evidence-Based Health Care.

This is a free event and members of the public are welcome to attend.
