C43 - Introduction to Clinical Research and Methods

Event Time: Sunday April 23, 2017 1:00 pm to 3:00 pm
Topic(s): Research Methodology, Education, and History
Director(s): Deborah Hall MD, PhD, FAAN
Description: The complex building of current clinical research continues to stand on three methodological pillars: the clinical trial, the cohort study, and the case-control study. These three methods, along with their combinations and modifications, enable us to investigate any possible cause-effect relationship across biological, personal, or social factors or events, symptoms, diseases, or conditions, and treatments, procedures, or interventions. This program provides a brief introduction to the three methods with emphasis on their complementarities and their relative strengths and weaknesses.
Completion Message: Participants should have a better understanding of how evidence is generated and disseminated in clinical neurology; improve their ability to design, conduct, and interpret studies; and improve their ability to write and read scientific papers and grant applications.
CME Credits: 2
