CTSA Conversations Series: Pragmatic Clinical Trials at UNC

The NC TraCS Comparative Effectiveness Research (CER) Strategic Initiative convened a series of meetings in summer 2014 to discuss UNC's capacity and needs to serve as a coordinating center for pragmatic clinical trials (PCT’s). A working group was pulled together drawing from informatics, trialists, CER experts, and PBRNs. The working group was charged with reviewing the key characteristics of PCTs, and then to focus on the capacity and infrastructure UNC needs to serve as a coordinating center.
