CTSC to hold half-day symposium on conducting comparative effectiveness research

Next month, the Clinical & Translational Science Collaborative will host a half-day symposium titled “So You Want To Do Comparative Effectiveness Research? The Nuts and Bolts of CER.”

The symposium will help physicians, biomedical researchers, nurses, case managers and more identify strategies to evaluate competing treatments and highlight the various research design methods available to perform CER. The course will be taught at an introductory level and is designed to provide resources for investigators to pursue future research projects.

After the symposium, participants should be able to discuss and use CER methodologies; identify research questions appropriate for each methodology; and describe basic concepts in CER literature.

The symposium will be held Dec. 14 from 7:30 a.m. to noon in the Wolstein Research Building auditorium.
