2020 CLIC Un-Meeting: Approaches to Evaluate Non-Pharmacological Interventions in Clinical Research

2020 CLIC Un-Meeting Logo

Travel Stipend Nomination Deadline: July 10, 2020


Conference Registration Deadline: July 17, 2020


The Un-Meeting will explore the methods and approaches for testing the value and utility of non-pharmacological interventions. Studies of nutrition, nutraceuticals, physical therapy, behavior change, exercise, and other non-pharmacologic interventions are challenging to design and conduct in a manner that provides convincing data for clinician and patient decision-making.  Especially when applied to non-pharmacologic interventions, trial designs, methods, and standards established to support regulatory approval of pharmacological interventions frequently result in conflicting or negative studies despite strong epidemiological evidence of benefit. Despite progress supported by various NIH programs and the CTSA biostatistical and clinical design cores, no consensus on best practices exists on the design of studies of non-pharmacologic interventions. Therefore, the goal of this Un-Meeting will be togather individuals interested in exploring ideas and methods for evaluating non-pharmacological interventions. Discussions will be focused around the types of evidence needed to advance this area and approaches to obtaining it.
