Study Designs for Evaluating the Impact of COVID-19-related Interventions and Interruptions

Final Session of a 4-part Implementation Science Panel Series on Adapting HIV and Other Interventions to Distance Models and Interruptions in Times of COVID-19

Presenters will provide an overview of appropriate study designs for COVID intervention evaluations as well as how/whether to adapt these designs (both with respect to data collection and analysis) that were conceived for non-COVID research in response to the COVID-19 pandemic or other disruptions. Designs that will be discussed include: pre/post and interrupted time series, stepped wedge, SMART designs, preference designs, and others that focus on implementation.

Speakers: Margaret Handley, Starley Shade, Jean Digitale, and Kristefer Stojanovski
