Trials within Cohorts Symposium 

 

Since the publication in 2010 of the innovative ‘cohort multiple randomised controlled trial’ design, there has been growing interest in trials within cohorts. However, as no one could remember the name of the design, in early 2014 it was renamed ‘Trials within Cohorts’ or ‘TwiCs’ for short. A 'TwICs' Symposium was held on the 19th and 11th of November 2014, with the aim of advancing the development and application of this design by bringing together triallists with practical experience of the ‘TwiCs’ design to share what they have learnt and discuss the challenges of the design.
