Event Navigation


In this workshop, an innovative methodological framework, the multiphase optimization strategy (MOST), will be presented. A comprehensive strategy for intervention optimization, MOST includes three phases: preparation, optimization, and evaluation. MOST can be used to build a new intervention or to improve an existing intervention. Using MOST it is possible to engineer an intervention to meet a specific criterion; for example, the objective might be to identify the intervention that achieves the best outcome obtainable for less than a specified implementation cost. This workshop will provide an introduction to MOST, with the objective of helping participants gain the skill set needed to be successful obtaining funding to apply MOST in their research.
