IAN Featured in New NIH Online Resource
The NIH (National Institutes of Health) Health Care Systems Research Collaboratory has launched a new website with updated content to promote the conduct of efficient pragmatic clinical trials that gather evidence to improve healthcare. Pragmatic clinical trials are studies that take place where people typically receive health care, such as community clinics and hospitals. Drawing on experiences from the NIH Collaboratory’s own pragmatic trials and community of experts, Rethinking Clinical Trials®: A Living Textbook of Pragmatic Clinical Trials explains how pragmatic trials are distinct and provides guidance on special considerations at each step of the research process, from trial design through applying results in the real world. The new Living Textbook can be accessed at www.rethinkingclinicaltrials.org.
