We invite you to our webinar “But will this benefit me?”: Applying Research Findings to Individual Patients on Thursday, December 5, 2019, from 12:00 pm to 1:00 pm ET.

This webinar will focus on patient-centered approaches to making research findings accessible to non-research audiences including therapy clients. Core principles of patient-centered research including autonomy, transparency, and personalization, will be discussed. Various statistics (e.g., “number needed to treat”) and decision-support tools will be illustrated with an in-depth look at the “Probability of Treatment Benefit” (PTB) approach. The presentation and discussion will incorporate ideas and concepts from a wide range of fields including probability, decision science, prediction, statistical literacy, and evidence-based medicine.
