• Learn a fun way to illustrate trial design and risk-of-bias (ROB) assessment.
• See demonstrated and experience the use of interactive wireless voting technology for active learning and data collection.
• Provide participants with ideas for teaching ROB concepts in their own settings.
In this workshop, attendees will have the opportunity to participate in 'Live the Trial', a mock randomised-controlled trial. The participants will see a demonstration of the steps of a mock RCT using candy to increase happiness. Interactive wireless voting technology will be employed to demonstrate the capture of data and facilitate direct participation. Throughout the workshop the risks of bias which can creep into a study will be explored, and to some extent experienced. Participants in previous 'Live the Trial' sessions have reported increased confidence in the identifying the risks of bias and steps of a randomised-controlled study. They have also reported the use of interactive voting to be helpful in their learning.
