Adaptive clinical trial reporting

Researchers from the University of Sheffield are looking for people who work in, or use clinical trial research reports, to take part in their survey on adaptive clinical trial reporting. The survey is part of a project that is developing guidelines for reporting adaptive designs. Ideally, there will be up to three rounds of the survey, but you can take part in any number of these. Adaptive designs use data during a clinical trial to change aspects of the design, such as early stopping of an unsafe treatment when there is enough evidence, whilst making sure it is credible. These designs can be very efficient, have value for money and ethical benefits. They are becoming more widely used due to these benefits but there are some issues with the use of them.
