Grand Rounds Webinar: Are You Ready for a Pragmatic Trial? The RAPT Model and Implementation Considerations
November 21, 2019 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pmFree
This webinar will describe the use of the Readiness Assessment for Pragmatic Trials (RAPT) model to asses an intervention’s readiness for a pragmatic randomized, controlled trial (PCT). PCTs are gaining momentum among among interventionists and funding agencies seeking to accelerate the testing and adoption of evidence-based strategies to improve care and outcomes because their findings are generalizable. Particular attention is being paid to non-pharmacological interventions, which are often complex and may be difficult to uniformly implement across multiple sites. While many such non-pharmacological interventions have proven efficacious in small trials, most have not been widely adopted. PCTs could accelerate effectiveness testing and adoption, yet there are no established criteria to identify interventions ready for testing in a PCT. This webinar will help demonstrate how the RAPT model can help to establish those criteria.
