Shaun Treweek helps people to design trials. He helps them think through what they have to do to avoid their finished trial being chucked in the bin because it doesn’t answer the questions that patients, their families and healthcare professionals actually had. He’s been doing this for nearly 20 years, Shaun is also Prof of Health Services Research at University of Aberdeen and leads an initiative called Trial Forge that aims to be more systematic about how we identify, generate and use research evidence in making trial design, conduct, analysis and reporting decisions.
