Training Modules for the User’s Guide for Developing a Protocol for Observational Comparative Effectiveness Research

Presentation

Researchers from the Effective Health Care Program's DEcIDE Network authored the user's guide, which identifies best practices for designing observational CER studies and standardizes the review of study protocols with checklists in each chapter. Topics in this user's guide include developing study objectives and questions, study design, data sources, and analysis.

The following educator resources, 12 presentations in PowerPoint format, are aligned with each chapter to expand training in these best practices.
