Many important clinical questions are difficult to answer with a classically designed randomised controlled trial. Using innovative trial designs has the potential to increase the efficiency and capacity for conducting high quality trials. This one-day workshop will include presentations, discussions and clinical examples of alternative trial designs for scenarios where a standard parallel group design may not be appropriate or feasible. The target audience for the workshop includes clinicians, researchers and statisticians involved in planning and conducting clinical and population-based trials.

The morning session will include talks on:
  • Dynamic treatment regimens
  • Adaptive trials
  • Cluster crossover trials
  • Stepped wedge trials


The afternoon session will consist of an open forum for discussion of proposed and potential trials.
