ROMP videos

We have developed three videos; each is about 3 minutes long.

The first video describes why doctors might not choose the same medication or treatment - even for the same patient. The Approaches to Research on Medical Practices video explains the methods researchers use to compare medications or treatments. The Informing or Asking? video explores how patients might be told about this research. Each video is about 3 minutes long.
