Hats off to our November presenter Prof. Angela Zink, who shared some valuable wisdom gained through her experience developing and managing an enormous registry (as we learned, terminology can be confusing and this is essentially a large cohort!) of Rheumatology patients in Germany. She provided us with some real-world examples of where randomized controlled trials reach their limits and how well-conducted observational studies can be even more informative under certain circumstances. Her energy, thoughtful methodological approaches, and patience overseeing such a large project certainly left our audience feeling inspired. We hope you enjoyed the discussion following the talk as much as we did.
See you at our next meeting on Weds. December 6th. More detailed information on that to follow in the next week… As always, future meeting dates/topics can be found on our calendar page.
Best wishes, JR
