Professional Development: New Resources for Social and Behavioral Trials -- CONSORT-SPI and NIH Template for Social and Behavioral Trials

DuBois, David. (2018, October 17). New Resources for Social and Behavioral Trials: CONSORT-SPI and NIH Template for Social and Behavioral Trials. Institute for Health Research and Policy, University of Illinois at Chicago.

In this Research & Professional Development Brown Bag Conversation, Dr. David DuBois reviewed two resources to support conduct of randomized control trials (RCTs) of social and behavioral interventions:

  1. The CONSORT-SPI, an extension of the widely-used CONSORT guidelines for reporting RCTs that aims to improve reporting of trials of social and psychological interventions.
     
  2. The Behavioral and Social Clinical Trials Template, a new resource developed by the NIH Office of Behavioral and Social Sciences Research.

Learn more about the template on the NIH website.

Read about the CONSORT-SPI guidelines in two articles published July 31, 2018, in the journal Trials: (1) on the reporting, by Montgomery, P., et al., and (2) on reporting guidance, by Grant, S., et al.
