The concept of a pragmatic clinical trial was developed to create a trial that can practically answer questions like, “Is the healthcare we are delivering really safe and effective?” and, “Which of the healthcare options should we use in practice to provide the best care to the patient?”. While the pragmatic clinical trial design has been around for a long time, we are seeing tremendous growth in the prevalence of these trials designed to help us understand the gap between “efficacy” and “effectiveness.”
