ViCBiostat half day workshop 10 February 2020 9am-1pm
Dynamic Treatment Regimens and SMART Design

Presenter: A/Prof Bibhas Chakraborty of Duke-NUS Medical School, Singapore


Effective treatment of chronic diseases and disorders typically requires ongoing interventions where clinicians sequentially make therapeutic decisions, adapting the type, dosage and timing of treatment according to evolving patient characteristics. The framework of dynamic treatment regimens (DTRs) or adaptive interventions formalizes this sequential decision-making process prevalent in clinical practice.

The workshop will provide a comprehensive presentation of this topic, including design of efficient clinical studies to produce such data, namely, the sequential multiple-assignment randomized trial (SMART).

The Melbourne Academic Centre for Health (MACH) has provided funding for this workshop, allowing its affiliates access at very low rates.



Times: 9am-1pm


Provided: Morning tea
