Research Designs and Bias: Part 2

Research Designs and Bias: Part 2

Part 2 of Dr. Amy Grant’s Research Designs session will delve into further detail on how to minimize biases associated with various study designs discussed in Part 1. Methods for measuring (e.g., inter-rater reliability, construct validity) and reducing biases will be introduced to demonstrate how to balance feasible versus optimal research designs. You are welcome and encouraged to join Part 2 even if you missed Part 1.

Learning Objectives

  • Understand different ways to measure biases within different study designs
  • Understand how to minimize and reduce biases within different study designs
  • Select feasible versus optimal study design methods for minimizing bias
