NEW! Optimization of Behavioral, Biobehavioral, and Biomedical Interventions : The Multiphase Optimization Strategy (MOST)

The Library has recently added Optimization of Behavioral, Biobehavioral, and Biomedical Interventions: The Multiphase Optimization Strategy (MOST) to our eBook collection.

Behavioral, biobehavioral, and biomedical interventions are programs with the objective of improving and maintaining human health and well-being.This volume is the first book to present a comprehensive introduction to the multi-phase optimization strategy (MOST), pioneered at The Methodology Center at the Pennsylvania State University, as an alternative to the classical approach of relying solely on the randomized controlled trial (RCT). Through numerous examples, the book demonstrates that MOST can be used to develop interventions that are more effective, efficient, economical, and scalable. This resource is essential for behavioral, biobehavioral, and biomedical scientists; statisticians, biostatisticians, and analysts working in epidemiology and public health.
