Course 1. Introduction
Course 2. Knowledge Synthesis
Course 3. Patient-Centered Outcomes Research (PCOR)
Course 4. Pragmatic Clinical Trials and Healthcare Delivery Evaluations
Course 5. Observational Studies and Registries
Learn from expert decision scientists, biostatisticians, oncologists, economists, social scientists, health care policy experts and epidemiologists how to conduct CER/PCOR and see how CER/PCOR methods have been applied in the real world to conduct state of the art research studies.
The CERTaIN Professional Certificate Program is intended for anyone interested in CER/PCOR methods. This program is comprised of 5 courses and includes a combined total of almost 50 lectures in CER/PCOR topics.
