Level: Intermediate to Advanced
Randomized control trials (RCTs) are increasingly used as one of the tools to build the evidence base on the effectiveness of complex agriculture, nutrition, and health interventions. Researchers conducting RCTs of complex interventions face design and analytic challenges that are not fully addressed in existing guidelines. This leads to questions and confusion among researchers, funders, and users of RCT evidence about how to conduct these trials and interpret their findings. The session will address key topics of confusion including the number of outcomes that can be assessed, the definition and meaning of primary and secondary outcomes, and whether to control for multiplicity.
