Studies Within a Trial

Studies Within a Trial (SWAT)

Our colleagues at Queen's University Belfast host the Studies Within a Trial (SWAT) and Studies Within a Review (SWAR) initiative (site).

It is being developed by the Northern Ireland Network for Trials Methodology Research in collaboration with the Medical Research Council's Network of Hubs for Trials Methodology Research in the UK (HTMR Network), the Health Research Board's Trials Methodology Research Network in Ireland (HRB-TMRN), and others.

More information, and a repository of existing SWATs can be found at the site. If you are interested in embedding methodology research into an ongoing trial and other prospective study, have a look at the SWAT (Studies Within A Trial) collection online to see examples, or to register a new SWAT.
