The Chicago Chapter of the American Statistical Association (ASA) and the Center for Behavior & Health of the Institute for Public Health and Medicine at Northwestern University are pleased to announce the 2017 Spring Workshop:
“Novel Experimental Approaches to Designing Effective Multi-component Interventions”

Speakers: Linda M. Collins, Pennsylvania State; Inbal Nahum-Shani, University of Michigan; Susan A. Murphy, Harvard University
Date and Time: Wednesday, May 3, 2017, 8:00 AM – 4:30 PM

Location: Northwestern University, Wieboldt Hall, Room 250. 340 E. Superior St. Chicago, IL

Description: Motivated by the desire to make optimal use of limited resources, a variety of new experimental designs have been developed to inform the construction of multi-component interventions—including interventions that capitalize on the ubiquity of mobile phones and advances in passive sensing technologies. These designs allow the experimenter to intervene in a dynamic, adaptive, and just-in-time manner. This workshop presents a non-technical introduction to multi-component interventions, adaptive interventions, and Just-In-Time adaptive interventions (JITAI) by the leading experts in the field. Organizing frameworks and experimental approaches that can inform the construction of these interventions will be reviewed. This includes: the multiphase optimization strategy (MOST), sequential multiple assignment randomized trials (SMART), and micro-randomized trials (MRT). A variety of case studies will be used for illustration.
