The Stepped-Wedge Clinical Trial: Evaluation by Rolling Deployment

Cluster randomized trials are performed when an intervention must be delivered to a group of patients like when testing new nursing protocols on award or different means for cleaning beds on a ward. One type of cluster trials is called a stepped-wedge where every cluster in the study ultimately undergoes the intervention. How this works it is explained by Susan Ellenberg, PhD, from the Department of Biostatistics, Epidemiology, and Informatics at the University of Pennsylvania School of Medicine.

JAMA Guide to Statistics and Methods

Clinical researchers and biostatisticians use highly specialized language to help them discuss statistics and research methods efficiently. In 2019 JAMA published the JAMA Guide to Statistics and Methods, a book of short reviews that translate that specialized language and explain statistics and methods to a broad physician readership. The book's editors and authors, Edward Livingston, MD, and Roger J. Lewis, MD, PhD, discuss their approach to choosing statistical topics and their objectives in compiling the reviews into book format.
