The “Schizophrenia Clinical Trials - what they tell us?webinar is now available on the World Psychiatric Association (WPA) Education Portal


Part of the WPA Webinar Series, the ‘Schizophrenia Clinical Trials - what they tell us?' webinar took place on Friday 27th May 2022 at 2pm CEST.


This webinar discussed the topic of schizophrenia clinical trials and how they are the cornerstone of current evidence-based medicine. Designs range from effectiveness trials with maximised internal validity but limited external generalisability, to effectiveness and large simple trials that maximise external validity but have reduced precision. Data analytics have equally evolved and become very sophisticated, and it has become increasingly important to choose the most appropriate statistical analysis plan for a given trial design, research question and attempt at minimising type I and/or type II error. Trial design, conduct and interpretation are critical components that need to be focused on. Both failed and successful trials provide an opportunity for learning.


The webinar included presentations from Dr. H.C. MULT. Hans-Jürgen Möller (Professor of Psychiatry, Chairman, Department of Psychiatry, Ludwig-Maximilians-University Munich, Germany) and Prof C.U. Correll (Professor of Psychiatry and Molecular Medicine, The Donald and Barbara Zucker School of Medicine at Hofstra/Northwell, Hempstead, NY USA Professor of Child and Adolescent Psychiatry, Charité University Medicine, Berlin, Germany) and concludes with Q&A.


A recording of the webinar is now available for viewing on WPA’s Education Portal here.
