Aim of Course
This course aims to develop participantsí appreciation and understanding of
basic statistical methods that are commonly applied in medicine.

Course objectives
Appreciate how data should be summarised and presented
Understand principles of statistical inference e.g. confidence intervals,
hypothesis testing and P values
Become familiar with common statistical analyses applied in medicine
(comparison of means, comparison of proportions)
Awareness of more sophisticated statistical techniques and when to apply
these (e.g. correlation, linear regression, analysis of covariance,
logistic regression)

Who should attend
This course is aimed at individuals who are required to interpret and/or
conduct basic statistical analyses commonly applied in medical research.
Applications are invited from researchers (clinical and non-clinical) and
health care professionals.

Course Format
The course is taught by lectures over 3 days.  Lecturers will use examples
from the published literature to illustrate statistical issues.  The course
will focus on the concepts without the need for mathematical formulae.

Course content
The course will cover the following topics.
Data types and summarising data
Selecting a representative sample and making inference about the population
Comparison of means (e.g. t-test, analysis of variance)
Analysis of categorical data (e.g. chi squared test)
Measures of disease association (e.g. odds ratio, risk ratio, risk
difference)
Correlation (i.e. the association between two numerical variables)
Basic statistical modelling (e.g. linear regression, logistic regression)
Analysis of covariance (e.g. to adjust for baseline imbalance in prognostic
factors)
Methods based on ranked data (i.e. non-parametric methods)
Sample size

What this course does not include
There will be no computer based practical sessions.

Teaching Staff
The course will be taught by staff from the Centre for Statistics in
Medicine.

Course Fee
£450 (Public sector).  This includes all course materials, lunches and
refreshments and a copy of Practical Statistics for Medical Research.  It
