Which is better: drug A or behavioral intervention B? The CTSI might be able to help you figure it out. We just released a new online training resource for people interested in an introduction to comparative effectiveness research. The site consists of 10 modules covering the basics of comparative effectiveness research, from definitions to methods and applications. Each module includes a narrated PowerPoint presentation and a brief quiz so you can check your understanding. Faculty from the URMC, Morehouse School of Medicine and the University of Toronto present the material. Connect to the site here.
For an expert consultation in comparative effectiveness research, contact the CTSI Research Help Desk at ResearchHelp@urmc.rochester.edu.
The modules were originally developed with the support of a supplement to the University of Rochester’s Clinical and Translational Science Award, grants number UL1RR024160 and UL1TR000042 from the National Institutes of Health.
