Danny Almirall: SMART designs, MAISY’s, and the Zen of giving it away

That Implementation Science Podcast

Aug 5 2023 • 1 hr 2 mins

Today we talk with Danny Almirall from the University of Michigan's d3C center. We talk about how learning about prime numbers set Danny up for a lifetime of teaching people about math, statistics, and methods, the difference between efficacy, effectiveness, and implementation studies, what is a SMART trial, and how do SMART trials inform adaptive interventions, what are MAISYs, and we learn a little bit about Salsa the dance and just a tiny bit about Salsa the food.

And

We mention the following papers:
