Part 3- Conference « RCTs and Knowledge Translation (KT): Why Do We Let the Perfect Be the Enemy of the Good? »

Friday March 13th 2015

RCTs are the gold standard of perfect evidence, but are too often considered by journals, peer reviewers, and research funders as the only way to evaluate KT interventions; on the other hand many researchers end up conducting uncontrolled before-after studies of limited validity for a variety of pragmatic and other reasons. Using examples from his KT research program Dr Majumdar shows a number of potential study designs that are not “perfect” but are good enough to lead to peer-reviewed funding, publication in major journals, and changes in clinical practice.
