"Learning Health Care Systems" and "Pragmatic Clinical Trials" are concepts that describe efforts to conduct comparative effectiveness studies between alternative accepted treatments in clinical health care settings.

While fundamental to the advancement of evidence-based medicine, interventions conducted under these rubrics do not neatly conform to traditional human subjects research norms, since they are also part of the clinical care of patients. In this session our panelists will help navigate these ethical boundaries.

Panelists include:

Daniel Nelson, MS, Dept. of Social Medicine and Office of Human Research
Tim Carey, MD, MPH, Sheps Center for Health Services
Daniel Moseley, PhD, Patient Safety and Outcomes Post-doctoral Training Program, School of Nursing
