    Understanding Stepped-Wedge Clinical Trials

    Cluster randomized trials are performed when an intervention must be delivered to a group of patients like when testing new nursing protocols on award or different means for cleaning beds on a ward. One type of cluster trials is called a stepped-wedge where every cluster in the study ultimately undergoes the intervention. How this works it is explained by Susan Ellenberg, PhD, from the Department of Biostatistics, Epidemiology, and Informatics at the University of Pennsylvania School of Medicine.

    What Is It Like to Have COVID-19?

    What Is It Like to Have COVID-19?

    COVID-19 continues to rapidly spread throughout the world. In the past few months, the population affected by the disease has shifted from older to younger patients. Public health officials are concerned that younger people seem not to be very compliant with recommendations regarding masking and social distancing. It is believed that younger people think that the adverse consequences of the disease occur in the elderly and not in them. Garret Salzman, MD, is a resident physician at UCLA and contracted the disease. He is young and healthy, but he has had substantial disability from COVID-19. He tells a cautionary tale of his experience with COVID-19 that this is not a benign disease in young people, that they need to be careful.

Very Good

Very fun and interesting content. I am a 3rd year medical student, and I really enjoy the historical perspectives and the broad overviews of the the topics coupled with detailed information. The production quality and scripts are also very well done. I think JAMA Clinical Reviews has mastered the Conversational style of instruction. Keep up the good work.
