CER Medication Adherence Seminar Series (May 30, 2014)

DATES: Fridays (sessions will occur about every 3-4 weeks)
TIME: 9-10 AM
LOCATION: Brinkhous-Bullitt Room 219

The TraCS Comparative Effectiveness Research (CER) Strategic Initiative is proud to announce an informative five-session seminar series on medication adherence. This series addresses methods of measuring medication adherence, the pros and cons of the different methods, and the methodological challenges of assessing medication adherence.

Researchers with experience in this area will lead each session with approximately a 30-minute overview of the topic area/issues followed by 30 minutes of question/answer and interchange. Prior to each session, PubMed links to one or two articles will be circulated. These articles will not be critiqued, but will serve as a foundation for the presentation and as a resource following the presentation.

More information is available here.
