Medicine: Mind The Gap. NIH Webinar Series.

Bridging the Gap Between Evidence and Practice

Medicine: Mind the Gap is a webinar series that explores research design, measurement, intervention, data analysis, and other methods of interest to prevention science. Examples of webinar topics include design and analysis of studies to evaluate multilevel interventions, N-of-1 and novel within-subject trial methods, applying mediation analysis to understand how interventions work, illustrating strengths and weaknesses of experimental and quasi-experimental designs, and engineering optimized behavioral interventions for increased public health impact. The webinar series aims to engage the prevention research community in thought-provoking discussions to promote the use of the best available methods in prevention research and to support the development of better methods.
