Instead of ‘N-of-1 trials are relevant when Randomized Control Trials are not available/applicable’, how about Randomized Control Trials are relevant when N-of-1 trials are not available/applicable’.
— Sunita Vohra
Sunita Vohra helped us close the day by grounding N-of-1 methods in the reality of clinical practice, where they can be extremely meaningful to patients and families. Sunita is a Centennial Professor in the faculty of Medicine at the University of Alberta, the founding director of Canada’s first academic pediatric integrative medicine program, and the lead author of the CONSORT extension for reporting N-of-1 trials. Her work both supporting N-of-1 research by her patients and establishing guidelines for clinical researchers interested in sharing the results of N-of-1 trials makes her uniquely positioned to bridget the gap between self-directed research and our systems of care.
