About The Event

 Course "Biostatistics for the Non-Statistician" has been pre-approved by RAPS as eligible for up to 12 credits towards a participant's RAC recertification upon full completion. Why should you attend: Statistics is a useful decision making tool in the clinical research arena. When working in a field where a p-value can determine the next steps on development of a drug or procedure, it is imperative that decision makers understand the theory and application of statistics. Many statistical softwares are now available to professionals. However, these softwares were developed for statisticians and can often be daunting to non-statisticians. How do you know if you are pressing the right key, let alone performing the best test? This seminar provides a non-mathematical introduction to biostatistics and is designed for non-statisticians. And it will benefit professionals who must understand and work with study design and interpretation of findings in a clinical or biotechnology setting. The focus of the seminar is to give you the information and skills necessary to understand statistical concepts and findings as applies to clinical research, and to confidently convey the information to others. Emphasis will be placed on the actual statistical (a) concepts, (b) application, and (c) interpretation, and not on mathematical formulas or actual data analysis. A basic understanding of statistics is desired, but not necessary. ________________________________________ Who will benefit: • Physicians • Clinical Research Associates • Clinical Project Managers/Leaders • Sponsors • Regulatory Professionals who use statistical concepts/terminology in reporting • Medical Writers who need to interpret statistical reports Day 1 Schedule ________________________________________ Lecture 1 (90 Mins): Why Statistics? • Do we really need statistical tests? • Sample vs. Population • I'm a statistician not a magician!
