“But will this benefit me?”: Applying Research Findings to Individual Patients

Webinar Overview:

Our speaker is Oliver Lindhiem, PhD Associate Professor of Psychiatry and Pediatrics, University of Pittsburgh, School of Medicine.

Our moderator is Eric A. Youngstrom, PhD, Professor of Psychology and Neuroscience, and Psychiatry, Acting Director, Center for Excellence in Research and Treatment of Bipolar Disorder, University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill.

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.
