This module covers key biostatistical concepts required to review and interpret findings published in the medical literature. Selected scientific publications are reviewed, discussed and criticised in terms of bias, uncertainty and scope.
Efficient experiments must be large enough to detect meaningful scientific differences and maximize the use of available resources. Learn about sample size and power calculations.
Variation is present in every experiment. Learn about DOE techniques to control variation, and to maximise data quality. Commonly used experimental designs are discussed as well as the statistical data analysis tools.
