Occupational therapists need to be able to evaluate the profession's interventions critically: to stop the ineffective, to reduce the hazardous and to promote the effective. Randomised controlled trials are a research tool for testing the efficacy of interventions with small to moderate effects. This review aims to cover the issues to be considered when designing a randomised controlled trial of complex interventions, such as occupational therapy.
