Psychosocial Intervention Research: Principles for Rigorous Design and Tips for Successful Conduct

Speakers: Susanne Dalton, Karla Gough, Penelope Schofield

During this 2 day workshop, presenters will give short methodological impulse lectures on 
  • principles of study designs, bias and confounding in this particular area of research,
  • choice of appropriate psychometric assessment measures,
  • how to standardise and manualise a psychosocial intervention,
  • planning of studies for complex psychosocial interventions including design options like cluster-randomisation and step-wedge,
  • determining sample size, the interplay with between expected/actual recruitment rates and budget (usually the three elements that make an RCT a success or failure) and approaches to analyses and how to deal with missing data.

Additionally we will discuss the interaction of research and clinical work and possibilities of the application of research findings into clinical routine work.

The main part of the workshop is dedicated to the discussion of the research projects or ideas of the workshop participants. Each participant will be encouraged to give a short presentation (3-5 slides) on an own planned or on-going study. 

Presentations will be conducted with humour and in an interactive fashion drawing on the presenters’ substantial research experience. All facilitators have extensive publication records in psychosocial cancer research and have learned about pitfalls in research from their own experience. Presentations will include case studies/real world examples and how-to-do suggestions

Please note that the workshop focuses solely on quantitative research methods.
