Randomized clinical trials will never provide enough: In defense of observational evidence

Spectrum, Stanford Center for Population Health Sciences | Distinguished Lecture Series

In this talk, Dr. Cullen discussed the limits of randomized trials to produce the evidence needed for clinical and public health interventions, and evolving methods to produce evidence comparable to that of RCTs from observational data.  Cullen will stress why clinicians- not researchers- need to understand the issues involved in interpreting observational evidence, because such data will become more heavily relied upon at the increasingly electronic bedside.
