Research Designs and Bias: Part 1

Research Designs and Bias: Part 1

This is the first of a two-part session on Research Designs delivered by Dr. Amy Grant. Covered in this first session are the basics of study design. This session will introduce some types and sources of bias that will help you determine what type of design will best answer your research question. Feel free to attend Part 1 even if you are unable to attend Part 2.

Learning Objectives

  • Understand various types of research design methodologies
  • Select the best study design to answer the research question effectively
  • Understand research design biases
  • Select appropriate study design methods for various case scenarios

Recommended for: Members of the NS Research Community who are new to writing research proposals, funding applications or who want to brush up on related skills. These sessions would be of most benefit to Early Career Investigators (PhDs, physicians, residents, fellows, other health care professionals etc.) or research staff who are interested in learning more, assisting with or are developing their own research studies.

In Person: RMU Multimedia Room, Room 114, Centre for Clinical Research, 5790 University Avenue, Halifax
