About this event

This presentation explores the development of research protocols in health care.
The presentation will explore how to develop research from a question or concern. For example, Dr Siska’s development of drug trial protocols, treatment strategies for post-partum haemorrhage, development of ambulatory teaching stages, assessment of psychosocial teaching for medical residents, evaluation of intervention in physician compliance, and effectiveness of information sharing in the development of advanced directives will be shared. The research designs explored include double-blind cross-over drug trials, observational research, time-series and Solomon four-group.
The takeaways from the presentation will be the awareness of multiple ways to design a study possible in any health care setting from an expert in the field.
