Launch of Randomise Me with Ben Goldacre

On 20 June 2013 we are launching Randomise Me, a free online trials generator. Supported by Nesta, Randomise Me has been developed by Ben Goldacre, and is set to revolutionise the ways in which randomised control trials (RCTs) are set up and run.

Randomise Me has been developed in the belief that trials should and could be used much more than they are currently are. The site will strip out the complexities commonly associated with the method, helping anyone set up a trial and answer the questions they care about, such as “are my heart palpitations caused by drinking coffee?” or “Will brain booster puzzles really help improve exam performance for the children I teach?”

At this event you will hear Ben Goldacre in conversation with Geoff Mulgan. Ben will outline why Randomise Me has been created, how it works, and why randomised control trials (RCT) are a vital component in helping us to understand what is working.  There will then be a Q&A, with the opportunity to ask questions about the project.

Ben Goldacre is a widely acclaimed broadcaster, writer, academic and physician. Ben is well known for his Guardian column ‘Bad Science’ and as the author of ‘Bad Pharma’ and ‘Bad Science’. Ben Goldacre is a trained physician and is currently a research fellow in epidemiology at the London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine. Randomise Me was built by Better Data, a non-profit health IT company run by Ben Goldacre and Carl Reynolds.
