15th November 2018 – Hilton Hotel, Sofia
Clinical Research in Human and Veterinary Homeopathy
How to get things started? Do’s and Don’ts!
Specially tailored to those who are new to research in homeopathy!
This workshop aims to inform new researchers on how to get their projects started and to raise awareness of common pitfalls in homeopathy research that can lead to studies having less impact upon publication than anticipated. Two main pitfalls deserve particular attention: poor study design and incomplete reporting. The day consists of a half day of presentation by experience researchers followed by a three-hour long workshop for questions, answers and to discuss proposals from the participants.
Presentations — 30min – 9:00 – 12:30
