Ophthalmic study design and approaches to statistical analysis
This course is aimed at anyone interested in ophthalmic research. You should attend if you want to know how to select a study design and statistical approach appropriate to your research question.
The speakers are members of the Ophthalmic Statistics Group, a group of statisticians whose aspiration is to raise the quality of statistics in ophthalmic journals, ACTIVE, a clinical trial centre – dedicated to eye research, and the Cochrane Eyes and Vision Group. There will be sessions related to aspects of study design/conduct and data analysis as well as sessions focusing on clinical trial design and sources of bias. Statistical formulae will be kept to a minimum (unless requested) and relevance to clinical ophthalmology will be at a maximum.
