Free Webinar on Micro-Randomized Trials (Part 2)
August 13, 2018
Join our next 1 & 1 workshop, when Methodology Center Investigator Susan Murphy will present "Analyzing data from a micro-randomized trial (MRT)." 1 & 1 workshops consist of a one-hour live video presentation on a method followed by a one-hour question-and-answer session with the presenter. The workshop will be held on Thursday, September 6, from 3:00 to 5:00 p.m. Eastern Time. This webinar is a follow up to the webinar that Susan presented on June 14, 2018. For anyone who did not attend Susan's first MRT workshop, we suggest watching the video of that webinar before joining us on September 6.
In an MRT, individuals are randomized hundreds or thousands of times over the course of a study. The goal of these trials is to optimize mobile health interventions by assessing the effect of intervention components and assessing whether the intervention component effects vary with time or the individuals current context. Through MRTs we can gather data to build optimized just-in-time adaptive interventions (JITAIs). JITAIs are a type of adaptive intervention that can be delivered exactly when and where it is needed using smartphones and other mobile devices for their sensors and ability to communicate with patients.
