BIOSTATS 6016EX - Clinical Biostatistics

External - Semester 1 - 2014

The aim of this course is to enable students to use correctly statistical methods of particular relevance to evidence-based health care and to advise clinicians on the application of these methods and interpretation of the results. The content includes: clinical agreement (Kappa statistics, Bland-Altman agreement method, intraclass correlation); diagnostic tests (sensitivity, specificity, predictive values, ROC curves, likelihood ratio); statistical process control (special and common causes of variation, Shewhart CUSUM and EWMA charts); and systematic reviews (process, estimating treatment effect, assessing heterogeneity, and publication bias).
