Free, Two-Hour, Online Workshop on Micro-Randomized Trials

April 10, 2018:susanm

For our next 1 & 1 workshop, Methodology Center Investigator Susan Murphy will present an introduction to the micro-randomized trial (MRT). 1 & 1 workshops consist of a one-hour live video presentation on a method followed by a one-hour question-and-answer session with the presenter. After the presentation, Susan will accept questions via instant message and answer them live. The workshop will be held on Thursday, June 14, from 3:00 to 5:00 p.m. Eastern Time.

In an MRT, individuals are randomized hundreds or thousands of times over the course of a study. The goal of these trials is to assess the proximal, in-the-moment, impact of interventions (e.g., interventions that are intended to impact behavior over small time intervals). Through MRTs we can gather data to build optimized just-in-time adaptive interventions (JITAIs). A JITAI is a special type of adaptive intervention that can be delivered exactly when and where it is needed using smartphones and other mobile devices for their sensors and ability to communicate with patients.

The 1 & 1 will be hosted via Zoom webinar at The workshop can accommodate up to 500 participants, so all interested people should be able to attend. If you try to attend the workshop but are unable to log on for any reason, please send an email to We hope you will join us.
