Online short course on the design and analysis of cluster randomised trials and stepped wedge designs

28 June to 2 July 2021

Cluster randomised trials and stepped wedge trials are increasingly used to evaluate health and social interventions. They require specific methods of statistical analysis. This course will include the rationale for using these designs, specific design issues, the randomisation process, sample size calculations, analytical methods, ethical considerations, and trial reporting and interpretation. We will include case studies from low-, middle- and high-income settings. Participants will gain practical experience of data analysis using the computer package Stata. Teaching will take place through a blend of pre-recorded video lectures and hands-on, live practical sessions.
