This workshop will cover contemporary issues in clinical trials, which aid clinicians in selecting cost-effective trial designs. NEW THIS YEAR, the workshop will cover: 1) multiple comparisons, 2) Bayesian thinking, 3) estimands, and 4) trial simulation. Instructors from both industry and academia will present. For each topic, lectures will start with an overview of basic concepts, followed by more advanced topics, using practical examples. The targeted audience is clinicians and statisticians, and the aim is for clinicians to deepen conceptual understanding, as well as to provide statisticians with available resources.

This workshop is organized by the Clinical Trials Advancement and Methods Professional Interest Area (PIA) of the Alzheimer's Association International Society to Advance Alzheimer's Research and Treatment (ISTAART).
