Advancing Clinical Research in Nephrology: Approaches and Methods

Course Description

This program covers many approaches used in modern clinical investigation, including epidemiology, clinical trials, and qualitative research. Attendees can learn about fundamental concepts, innovative approaches to data acquisition, stakeholder engagement, systems biology, precision medicine, and implementation science. Case studies and panel discussions illustrate challenges and solutions, and help facilitate interaction between course participants and speakers.

Course Objective(s)

Upon completion of the program, the participant will be able to: 1) describe sources of and considerations in selecting exposures and outcomes for clinical research; 2) identify ways to make research relevant to patients and stakeholders; 3) describe key considerations in ensuring rigorous study design for observational studies and clinical trials; 4) apply high-dimensional data to kidney research; 5) describe approaches to health services research to change health care delivery; and 6) recognize the role of patient-reported outcomes (PROs) and qualitative research.
