This Grand Rounds webinar uses a case example to describe how a pilot can be used to test the adequacy of existing data for evaluating an ePCT outcome. Dr. McCreedy also describes a potentially efficient ePCT design that accommodates under-detection in existing data while maintaining large-scale implementation and evaluation.
