Title: Why Do We Do So Few Randomized Trials in Knowledge Translation?

About the Presentation:

The many barriers to knowledge translation (KT) have been well described, but perhaps less attention has been paid to how hard it is to do KT research and in particular, how difficult it is to conduct randomized trials in the field. Using pragmatic examples from his work and others, Dr. Majumdar will describe non-randomized trials of KT that are of sufficient validity that they permit both drawing causal inference and publication in top tier journals.
