Thank you for the great question. RCT originally was used in drug trials but now increasingly used in human services. It involves randomly allocating some participants to a group that receives an intervention and others to a group that doesn't receive it (known as the "intervention" and "control/comparison" groups). The purpose of randomization is to attribute outcomes to the intervention instead of any other factors influencing those outcomes to avoid bias.

Dear Dr. Mel, may I know more about the nature of CSO service in HK? I wonder who will help offenders to reintegrate into the community.

Hi, I realized that it seems the concept “outcome” is different from the term “output”. Taking the grandparent training project as an example, what is the “outcome’ referable?

I have designed a large-scale survey about the life satisfaction of low-income families in Hong Kong. Is it appropriate to use the electronic survey through mobile phones?
