This is a course for health professionals who wish to strengthen their statistical skills and ability to analyse data. Students will gain the confidence in carrying out the methods that are widely used in medical statistics, and interpreting the results for the practice of evidence-based health care.
- Gain competence in execution and interpretation of core statistical techniques used by medical statisticians inside and outside the context of clinical trials, particularly those used in multi-variable analyses: multiple linear regression, logistic regression, and survival modelling; statistical analysis plans and statistical reporting
- Gain competence in execution and interpretation of student-selected areas: meta-analysis, systematic reviews, big data epidemiology, statistical computing, diagnosis and screening, study design and research methods
- Gain hands-on experience, supervised by a senior member of our medical statistics team, of the analysis/meta-analysis of healthcare data, in order to address a question in evidence-based healthcare
