About the workshop:
This workshop presents a non-technical introduction to the fundamentals of clinical trials, including: methods of randomization; selecting appropriate designs; the difference between pilot and feasibility studies; overviews of SPIRIT guidance for clinical trial protocols and the CONSORT statement for reporting of trials.
The target audience is clinicians and researchers who are interested in learning more about the basics of clinical trials, and the newly established protocol and reporting guidelines. The aim of the workshop is to provide an introduction to the basic statistical and design issues and an understanding of reporting guidelines to promote excellent research and enhance high impact publications. The workshop will consist of two hour long presentations with opportunity for further discussion and questions, and will signpost further available resources.
This event is part of a series of free training workshops organised by the Centre for Biostatistics to disseminate new statistical methodology of interest to researchers in the Faculty and wider University.
