This webinar will offer a brief introduction to the sequential, multiple, assignment, randomized trial (SMART) design. SMART designs are motivated by interest in tailored, sequential interventions or adaptive interventions and may be implemented to find effective strategies in intervention development. An overview of SMART design principles and introduction to analytic methods will be provided, with real examples from a variety of fields. The use of the SMART design in a HRB-funded DIFA project will be outlined. This webinar is geared toward a diverse audience from scientific investigators to statisticians to students.
Prof Kelley Kidwell, Associate Professor, Biostatistics, University of Michigan, is a leading international researcher in the area of SMART designs. Her methodological work centers on better matching the way in which we practice medicine and public health to the way in which we experimentally study it. Dr. Kidwell’s methods work has primarily focused on the design and analysis of sequential, multiple assignment, randomized trials (SMARTs), in standard or large size trials for treating common diseases and disorders, and in small samples or for treating rare diseases.
