HANDLING MISSING OUTCOME DATA IN RANDOMISED TRIALS
MRC BIOSTATISTICS UNIT, CAMBRIDGE

14-15 March 2012

Lecturers: Ian White, Simon Bond, Shaun Seaman, Adrian Mander, James Wason.

Please see http://www.mrc-bsu.cam.ac.uk/HTMRmiss/ for more details and 
online registration form.

COURSE AIMS

    *

       Review some popular ways to analyse trials with missing data,
       focussing on the assumptions underlying them

    *

       Discuss what assumptions may be plausible and how one should
       decide this in particular trials

    *

       Describe the theory for mixed models analysis of incomplete
       data, how they should be implemented, and what are the pitfalls

    *

       Demonstrate how to analyse data using mixed models and multiple
       imputation in Stata, R and SAS

    *

       Discuss the advantages and disadvantages of the two methods

    *

       Discuss the different issues involved in handling missing baselines

The workshop will provide practising statisticians with the necessary 
practical skills to handle missing data in their analyses, and in 
particular to move beyond the use of complete-case analysis and last 
observation carried forward analysis. We will focus on trials with 
quantitative outcomes, and also consider binary outcomes but not 
time-to-event outcomes.
