WAHTN Distinguished Visiting Professor Series: Pragmatic Randomised Trials Workshops

The WAHTN and UWA School of Population and Global Health are proud to host Professor Merrick Zwarenstein  (Department of Family Medicine, Epidemiology & Biostatistics, Western University, Ontario; see profile here ) in Perth in early-November 2019 as part of the WAHTN’s Distinguished Visiting Professor Program.

Merrick is an internationally-renowned primary care and health services researcher who trained at the Karolinska Institute (Sweden), the London School of Hygiene (UK) and Witwatersrand University Medical School (South Africa).  He is recognised as one of the foremost international experts in the area of pragmatic randomised controlled trial design.

As part of his visit Merrick will be running an introductory-level half-day workshop (4 November) and 3-day intensive short-course (5-7 November) on the concept of pragmatism in randomised controlled trials (RCTs) and how to design and evaluate such pragmatic trials to maximise applicability in real-world practice settings.  Workshops are designed for researchers, clinical trials professionals, public health professionals, policy makes, statisticians, epidemiologists and clinicians who understand the basic theory or practice of RCT design.

Course fees are heavily subsidised (by 70%) by the WAHTN and UWA School of Population and Global Health and specific details are available in the attached flyer below.
