Randomised controlled trials (RCTs) are often used for evaluating healthcare treatments, however often face difficulties e.g. with recruitment leading to biased results. The evidence available to support decisions on recruitment is sparse.

In this seminar, Louise von Essen will explain how Studies Within A Trial (SWAT) can be used to increase evidence-based knowledge about different recruitment strategies. She will provide a brief presentation of SWATs, an explanation of why they are important and some practical ‘top tips’ based on experiences from having used SWATs in her research.

The seminar will be in English.
