This course is designed to be a fun introduction to the appropriate application and interpretation of biostatistical concepts for people working in clinical research with no formal statistical training.
The focus of this course will not be on carrying out analyses, but rather on understanding the appropriate use of statistical methods, the implications when underlying assumptions are not met, and how to interpret statistical results. Course material will be presented through examples and all statistical analyses will be performed by the course instructors.
There are no software requirements. Participants can attend an additional 1-day workshop for an Introduction to statistical analyses using SPSS.
