Venue: Brussels, Belgium
This course is designed as an introduction to the statistical principles which form the basis for the design and analysis of cancer clinical trials. It will concentrate on the philosophy and understanding of the statistical principles that are used on a day-to-day basis in conducting clinical trials and will not simply present statistical formulae in a cookbook fashion.
This course is aimed at non statisticians (medical doctors, data managers, etc.) who are already working in the field of clinical trials and who have had an introductory course in statistics, or at statisticians with little or no experience in clinical trials. For those persons who would like a review of the basic statistical concepts, an optional half day introduction to statistical methods has been organized.
