NIH Webinar: Stepped Wedge Cluster Randomized Designs for Disease Prevention Research

Presented by Monica Taljaard, Ph.D.
Wednesday, July 11, 2018 | 11:00 a.m.–12:00 noon ET

The stepped wedge cluster randomized design has seen a rapid increase in popularity over the past decade. It is different than the conventional parallel arm cluster randomized design in that all clusters (e.g., communities, schools, or hospitals), rather than half, receive the intervention. This presentation will:

·    Explain the unique characteristics of the stepped wedge cluster randomized design and its implications for sample size calculation and analysis.

·    Discuss the strengths and weaknesses of stepped wedge design compared to traditional designs. 

 Dr. Taljaard will accept questions during the webinar via WebEx and Twitter. Use the hashtag #NIHMtG.
