NIH Summer Institute on Randomized Behavioral Clinical Trials
The Summer Institute provides an advanced course in planning, designing, and conducting high-impact randomized controlled trials of health-related behavioral interventions. It emphasizes programmatic research and prepares fellows to lead or collaborate on systematic efforts to develop and improve health-related behavioral interventions and on rigorous, high-impact behavioral trials. The Institute’s long-term goal is to build an outstanding scientific workforce that will conduct clinical trials that can change practice guidelines, health care policies, and third-party coverage for health-related behavioral interventions, and that can help to expand the role of evidence-based behavioral interventions in clinical and preventive services. By the end of this course, participants will be able to:
- Evaluate the evidentiary requirements of health care gatekeepers and the needs of stakeholders in health-related behavioral interventions.
- Formulate long-term goals for high-impact health-related behavioral intervention research programs.
- Use translational research models and optimization frameworks to guide intervention research.
- Incorporate basic behavioral and social science findings and advanced methodologies in this research.
- Understand the role of multidisciplinary team science in high-impact behavioral intervention research.
- Produce a plan to disseminate the knowledge gained in this course.
