A Virtual Training Session for Practice-based Implementation and Programmatic Assessment

Pharmacy faculty, graduate students or administrators engaged in or interested in pharmacy research, programmatic assessment or implementation science are encouraged to attend this interactive, 90-minute virtual session on Thursday, October 12, 2023. This session will introduce the pharmacist researcher to coincidence analysis, including its key strengths and limitations compared to traditional analytic techniques, and how this method can be applied to a variety of research questions including those within implementation science and programmatic/curricular assessment.
