Child Health Clinical Trials, Cohort Studies, Predictive Models, Clinimetrics, Decision Analysis
The work of the EnRICH Research Group and Network (https://lab.research.sickkids.ca/enrich/) aims to enhance child health through the discovery of innovative methods that will transform the way we design, conduct and report child health clinical research. To provide global solutions to methodological problems in pediatric research, EnRICH is engaged in a number of local and international initiatives including Toronto Outcomes Research in Child Health (TORCH), Consolidated Standards of Reporting Trials –Children (CONSORT-C), Standard Protocol Items for Randomized Trials – Children (SPIRIT-C), and Standards for Research in Child Health (StaR Child Health). In addition to these initiatives the EnRICH program offers training opportunities in the form of a course on Innovative Trial Design, postdoctoral fellowships and summer student projects in clinical research methodology. Practical, evidence-based standards to enhance the quality, ethics, and relevance of clinical research in child health can ultimately advance health care provided to children across the globe and enhance health outcomes.
