‘Trials within Cohorts’ Symposium 2014

10 – 11 November 2014
London School of Hygiene & Tropical Medicine, London
Manson Lecture Theatre

In association with NIHR CLAHRC Yorkshire and Humber, and NIHR CLAHRC North Thames
Since the publication in 2010 of the innovative ‘cohort multiple randomised controlled trial’ design (http://www.bmj.com/content/340/bmj.c1066), there has been growing interest in trials within cohorts. However, as no one could remember the name of the design, in early 2014 it was renamed ‘Trials within Cohorts’ or ‘TwiCs’ for short.

The purpose of this symposium is to advance the development and application of this design. This event brings together triallists with practical experience of the ‘TwiCs’ design; providing an opportunity for them to share with others what they have learnt about the practical, ethical and statistical aspects of the design.

We invite all researchers interested in practical trial design to participate in this two day symposium.
