This introductory course provides an opportunity for fellows and junior faculty to become familiar with the tools, and vocabulary of T3/T4 research. Sessions are designed to help participants understand the motivations for T3/T4 research and the relationship between this domain and other T-domains. Participants will also develop an appreciation for the broad range of study designs and methods employed by T3/T4 researchers, as well as understand how the choice of research methods affects feasibility and potential study implications.
T3/T4 research addresses questions such as:
- How do alternative therapies for a given condition compare in their effectiveness and safety?
- Do the added benefits from a new therapy represent good value for money?
- What is the best way to get my patients to quit smoking? To lose weight? To take their medications?
- Does expanding health insurance coverage reduce racial and ethnic disparities in infant mortality?
- Does a public health campaign increase HPV vaccination rates amongst teenagers?
Presentations will include formal introductory lectures on T3/T4 research methods, as well as case examples presented by researchers actively working in this space.
