About the Workshop
The IMPACT Collaboratory's mission is to build the nation’s capacity to conduct embedded pragmatic clinical trials (ePCTs) in Alzheimer’s Disease and Alzheimer’s Disease-Related Dementias (AD/ADRD). Training a workforce of investigators prepared to conduct ePCTs of non-pharmacological interventions embedded in healthcare systems is critical to this mission. The IMPACT Collaboratory holds an annual Training Workshop for program participants to develop competence in designing and conducting ePCTs of interventions to improve care for people living with dementia and their care partners.
This virtual 1.5-day workshop that will provide a foundation in practical aspects of designing and conducting ePCTs in AD/ADRD through a combination of panel discussions, small group sessions, and networking opportunities with experts in the field. Participants will gain knowledge in ePCT design and method, problem-solve challenges faced in current or planned projects, and network and engage with the larger community of IMPACT investigators. Throughout the program, special attention is paid to key considerations in designing ePCTs to ensure health equity.
Call for Applications for January 2024 Training Workshop

The IMPACT Collaboratory will hold the fourth annual Training Workshop on January 24-25, 2024 entitled Building Skills to Conduct Embedded Pragmatic Clinical Trials (ePCTs) among People Living with Dementia (PLWD) and their Care Partners. This 1.5-day virtual workshop features all new material to build a foundation in practical aspects of designing and conducting ePCTs in Alzheimer’s disease (AD) and AD-related dementias (ADRD). The workshop will include a combination of activities including: panel discussions, small group sessions, and networking opportunities with experts in the field.
We are inviting applications from early to mid-stage researchers who seek to develop competence in designing and conducting ePCTs of non-pharmacological interventions embedded in health care systems for PLWD and care partners.
Upon completion of the workshop, participants will be able to:
Transmit knowledge about designing and conducting ePCTs among PLWD and care partners in health care systems that integrates considerations related to estimating sample size requirements and establishing and sustaining key partnerships
Problem-solve common challenges in designing and conducting ePCTs for PLWD and care partners
Apply the acquired knowledge to move their current and future research in ePCTs forward, including applying for competitive funding
Successful applicants will be expected to complete selected readings and online training prior to the workshop. All participants are expected to attend and participate in the entire 1.5-day event.
All participants are expected to attend and participate in the entire 1.5-day event.
APPLICATIONS DUE: October 20, 2023 for the January 2024 Workshop.
