Aim 2 – Carry out effect studies
A central part of our activities is directed at conducting randomized and quasi-randomized trials of infection control measures.
AIM 2 of the Center for Epidemic Interventions Research reads as follows:
Carry out effect studies by
- Conducting randomised and quasi-randomised trials (including process evaluation) of infection control measures
- Conducting randomised and quasi-randomised trials (including process evaluation) of interventions to improve adherence to infection control measures
- Utilizing existing data to assess the impact of infection control measures that have been implemented in distinct areas at certain times
- Conducting randomized trials of communication strategies and sanctions on perceptions and intended behaviours (e.g. A/B-testing online).
