September 12, 2019

Study Design

This workshop is part of a series of workshops co-sponsored by CTSI Biostatistics, Epidemiology, and Research Design Core and the RCR Center.

For a research study to successfully answer the clinical question being addressed, the appropriate study design must be implemented. The purpose of this workshop is to provide a basic overview of common study designs, as well as the advantages and limitations of each approach.

Ethical standards and responsible practices are the context for successful scientific research. At any step in the research process, you may need to address ethical issues in a thoughtful, responsible manner. The CTSI Responsible Conduct of Research (RCR) Center serves is a resource for researchers at the University of Pittsburgh.

 

Learning Objectives

 Our objective is to provide education so that you can learn to effectively recognize and avoid research misconduct and understand the resources that are available to support your research.
