The Australian Clinical Trials Alliance – Statistics in Trials In Trials Interest Group (ACTA-STInG), the ACTA Innovative Trials Design and Conduct Reference Group, the Melbourne Academic Centre for Health (MACH), and the SSA Biostatistics Section are pleased to announce the upcoming workshop on Adaptive Trials on Thursday 22 March. There will be an additional, half-day workshop on the morning of Friday 23 March about conducting simulations for designing clinical trials. The aim of the workshop on 22 March is to bring together statisticians and clinicians with an interest in adaptive clinical trial designs to share knowledge and information about current research in adaptive designs and their application. In the morning there will be an introduction to adaptive designs, ranging from traditional frequentist to innovative platform trials, including the statistical issues and the challenges of utilising such designs. In the afternoon researchers who have experience in running adaptive trials will present examples of their trials. The day will include plenty of time for discussion, ending with a panel discussion about “Where to from here?”. The workshop on 23 March will be more technical and aimed at statisticians. Both workshops will be held at the Royal Children’s Hospital in Melbourne.
The workshops will finish at 5:00pm on Thursday and 12:30pm on Friday.
