Intensive training and supervision will be provided by Dr. Jason Chapman across current NIDA and NIMH grants awarded to Drs. Lisa Saldana, Ashli Sheidow, and Mike McCart. The projects include stepped-wedge cluster randomized designs, hybrid implementation-effectiveness designs, multi-site randomized trials, and a randomized controlled trial focused on experimental mediation. Training will focus on implementing research plans, advanced statistical analyses, developing and evaluating measurement instruments, disseminating research findings, and designing new studies and data analysis plans.
