Athene and Sia, will deliver an IAHS seminar on Tuesday 28 October entitled: ConDucT hub for trial methodology research on trial effectiveness where they will present their research on source data validation and participant retention and discuss their in-depth ethnographic study of the functioning of Trial Steering Committees and their interactions with Trial Management Groups. They will also discuss the systematic review they are currently undertaking to investigate the types and methods of training currently used in RCTs and investigate the effect of trial staff training on various aspects of trial conduct. They aim to identify domains and themes related to training of trial staff which will be of interest for further research.  Further details on the ConDucT hub can be found here.
