Topic: Estimating the effect of treatment on people who comply with allocated treatment in randomised controlled trial using CACE (Complier Average Causal Effect)
Presenters: Professor Rob Herbert and Dr Nicola Fairhall. Prof Rob Herbert will provide a brief background on what it means to be a complier, the complier average causal effect (CACE), assumptions needed to estimate the CACE, and approaches to estimating the CACE. Dr Nicola Fairhall will discuss the practical application of CACE analysis using an example from one of her randomised controlled trials.
