Clinical Statistics for Nonstatisticians
This on demand training will take approximately 8 hours to complete.
This on demand training answers common questions and addresses topics such as confidence intervals, hypothesis testing, trial designs, and methods for establishing non-inferiority. This course will increase the level of statistical knowledge of nonstatisticians so that collaborative efforts of statisticians and nonstatisticians on clinical investigative teams can be improved.
Course Level: Beginner
- Emphasizes the basic statistical concepts relevant to clinical research
- Comparable to an introductory statistics course presented with limited use computational formulas
- Emphasizes thinking critically about data, making valid inferences, and understanding how statisticians are an essential element of clinical investigations
Who should attend?
- Clinical research professionals
- Administrative support for clinical development
- Finance professionals involved in clinical development and need to interact with project specialists
- Professionals who must understand and work with statisticians in clinical research
- Those with a basic understanding of clinical research and a fundamental exposure to statistics either through professional experience or formal study
At the completion of this activity, participants should be able to:
- Recognize concepts such as variability, confidence intervals, hypothesis testing, and P-values and their applications to current projects
- Distinguish various study designs and identify techniques to avoid bias in current and new studies
- Discuss the importance of collaboration with statisticians when designing and interpreting results from clinical trials
- Demonstrate how to establish clinical non-inferiority and equivalence
- Effectively speak to co-workers and management using statistical terms
- Identify the statistician’s role in clinical research
