IC1: N=1 Studies; What Are They and How Do I Do One?
Primary Subject Area: Other
Content Level: Intermediate (2-5 yrs)
Due to the number and individualized nature of AT, large clinical trials are rare, and often impossible to conduct. N=1, or Single Subject Designs (SSD), and meta-analysis of multiple SSDs offer methods to AT researchers and practitioners to quantify outcomes. This course will cover the history and current state of AT outcomes, including issues and possible solutions; discuss SSD methodologies and analyses, critique current SSD research articles, and discuss the importance of meta-analysis of SSD for evidence based practice. Participants will get a chance to work with the presenters on creating a SSD experiment to demonstrate a grasp of the topic, and will be able to participate in a question and answer session with leading AT outcomes and SSD experts.
