Comparative Effectiveness Research (CER) is an important national initiative that will have a significant impact on decision-making regarding interventions that affect the health, function, and quality of life for persons with disabilities.
On June 22, 2012 the Boston ROC, along with our colleagues at CRRLD and TREAT, held a conference in Boston MA to discuss the,”New Frontiers in Disability Related Comparative Effectiveness Research.” Several sessions of the conference were webcast, and now the archived webcast is available for viewing.
- Panel Discussion: Pros and Cons of Different Research Designs for CER
- Diagnosis and Classification in CER
- Defining Treatment Interventions
- Outcome Measurement in CER
Access to the archive webcast is free, but you must register first.
