Initiative for Multicenter Pragmatic Anesthesiology Clinical Trials’ (IMPACT)

The program will showcase promising pragmatic trials from some of tomorrow’s leaders in anesthesiology research. The agenda will include:

  • A panel on innovative and efficient approaches to multicenter clinical trials.
  • A presentation and review of three selected clinical trial protocols. The review will include constructive feedback regarding clarity of hypotheses, merit of research methods, and feasibility.The goal of the review panel is to address issues common to many proposals to ensure an educational experience for all investigators who attend the symposium, in addition to those whose proposals are selected.

The presentation will include:
