Information für interessierte Physiotherapeutinnen und Physiotherapeuten

Liebe Kolleginnen und Kollegen

 

Nach eingehender Überprüfung der Durchführbarkeit des diesjährigen Clinical Research Forums in unterschiedlichsten Varianten, haben wir uns aufgrund mehrerer unsicheren Variablen dagegen entschieden. Auch an uns geht die Corona-Krise nicht spurlos vorüber.

 

Der Entschluss, das Clinical Research Forum um ein Jahr zu verschieben, ist uns nicht leicht gefallen. Trotzdem sehen wir im ursprünglich geplanten Setting, mit Anwesenheit der Teilnehmer, Besichtigung der lokalen Forschungsinfrastruktur und aktives Networking aller Teilnehmenden einen höheren Nutzen für alle Beteiligten. Das Forum wird am Samstag 6. November 2021, in Abhängigkeit der Entwicklung der Corona-Situation, wieder an der HESV angestrebt. Mit grosser Freude würden wir Sie auch dann sehr gerne als TeilnehmerIn in Lausanne empfangen.

 

Freundliche Grüsse und gute Gesundheit

15th Clinical Research Forum in Lausanne

Potential of pre-clinical studies: feasibility and pilot studies

Saturday, November 6th, 2021

For studies conducted in preparation for a randomized controlled trial assessing the effect of a therapy
or intervention, three distinct types of study come under the umbrella of feasibility studies: randomised
pilot studies, non-randomised pilot studies, and feasibility studies that are not pilot studies.

A feasibility study asks whether something can be done, should we proceed with it, and if so, how.
A pilot study asks the same questions but also has a specific design feature: in a pilot study a future
study, or part of a future study, is conducted on a smaller scale. Pilot studies are a subset of feasibility
studies, rather than the two being mutually exclusive.

This year, the Clinical Research Forum has invited national and international speakers who have
made their experiences with feasibility and pilot studies. They will talk about the challenges when
planning those study designs and how therapists should interpret the results of such
studies.

To discuss this subject, three exciting key lectures and two workshops with practical application have been prepared:
