The MRC ConDuCT Hub for Trials Methodology Research

Welcome to ConDuCT-II

ConDuCT stands for Collaboration and innovation in Difficult and Complex randomised controlled Trials procedures and is part of the MRC's Network of Hubs for Trials Methodology Research

The Hub had four main themes:

Theme 1: Prioritisation and Trial Design for Cost-effectiveness Analysis

Theme 2: Integrative and dynamic research methods to optimise recruitment to RCTs

Theme 3: Improving feasibility study designs and trial conduct to enhance trial quality and results

Theme 4: Outcomes in RCTs - assessment, reporting and integration in decision-making

The Hub was open between 2009 and 2019. It aimed to develop a world class centre of excellence for high-quality, cutting-edge methodological research of relevance to pragmatic RCTs in general, but with a particular focus on the needs of RCTs in surgery.

Our research is methodological and scientists collaborate on projects that span all aspects of trial prioritisation, design and conduct with opportunities for application in trials of surgery and other complex healthcare interventions.
