The IMPACT Collaboratory invites applications from early to mid-career researchers to participate in the first annual Training Workshop and Retreat, “Building Skills to Conduct Embedded Pragmatic Clinical Trials for People Living with Dementia (PLWD) and their Care Partners”, on April 7-8, 2021. Program participants will develop competence in designing and conducting ePCTs of interventions to improve care for PLWD and their care partners. We anticipate accepting up to 25 participants to attend the workshop.
This virtual 1.5-day workshop and retreat will provide a foundation in practical aspects of designing and conducting ePCTs in AD/ADRD through a combination of panel discussions, small group sessions, and networking opportunities with experts in the field. Workshop modules will focus on healthcare systems, implementation science, and study design.
Participants will gain knowledge in ePCT design and method, problem-solve challenges faced in current or planned projects, and network and engage with the larger community of IMPACT investigators. Throughout the program, special attention will be paid to key considerations in design, implementation and monitoring ePCTs of PLWD and care partners to ensure health equity.
Successful applicants will be expected to complete selected readings and online training prior to the workshop. Please note that all participants will be expected to attend and participate in the entire 1.5-day IMPACT Collaboratory Training Workshop and Retreat.
