Overview and goals of workshop

Single case experimental design (SCED) studies, also known as N-of-1 trials, provide researchers with a flexible and viable alternative to group designs with large sample sizes. SCEDs are scientifically rigorous experiments in which the participant provides his/her own control data for the purpose of comparison in a within-subject design. This paradigm differs significantly from the more familiar between-subjects design. Workshop participants will learn how to design, conduct and analyse scientifically rigorous SCED studies, with plenty of worked examples. On day 2, participants will have the opportunity to develop their own SCED proposals in small group format, under the expert guidance of the workshop presenters. By the end of the workshop, participants will have the skills, tools and confidence to design, conduct and analyse their own SCEDs.
