Not all studies are created equal.
When you need answers from an epidemiological study, it is important to know the study is properly designed to give you accurate and unbiased results. Inaccurate studies are not just inconvenient; they are dangerous. Misleading people with faulty science can lead to wasted resources, public distrust, and catastrophic results.
Study Design and Review
CTEH epidemiologists bring Ph.D.-level expertise in designing studies that show the true correlation between exposure and disease. With boots-on-the-ground experience, our team also understands nuances often overlooked by less well-rounded scientists who stay behind a desk. We have firsthand experience carefully identifying and controlling for biased information - question framing and tone as well the background or context of the situation or individual can provide dramatically different results.
If needed, CTEH epidemiologists can also critically evaluate previous studies to help you understand results, statistics, and identify potential flaws in the design.
Large data sets don’t scare us. Unlike other organizations, we are supported by a deep bench of data managers, developers, and statisticians that organize data, identify health relationships, interpret information, and visualize concepts so you and your audience can plainly understand it. Our online tools give web-based access to users while maintaining security standards that rival government servers.
If you are conducting a study, you and your stakeholders need to be able to understand all aspects, from design to result interpretation. Our experts are trained communicators capable of breaking down complex concepts for laypersons - let the CTEH team help ensure the messages conveyed by the results are clear and digestible.
