Pragmatic clinical trials (PCTs) compare or assess interventions in real-world practice settings, hoping to deliver data on effectiveness and safety that more closely resembles clinical care than explanatory clinical trials that focus on demonstrating efficacy in a highly controlled setting. PCTs obscure the distinction between research and clinical care more than traditional randomized control trials (RCTs), which in turn raises novel ethical questions concerning informed consent, data privacy, incidental findings, and other issues.
