Develop the statistical knowledge required to better understand today’s cancer clinical trials!
Today, statistics are critical to understand clinical trials. This EORTC course provides an introduction to the statistical methods used for the design, conduct and analysis of cancer clinical trials.
This course will provide a greater understanding of the statistical principles whilst avoiding too technical formulations. Attendees will be better equipped to design their own clinical research, work in a multidisciplinary team involving statisticians and to critically appraise the scientific value of published research.
This course is aimed at non-statisticians who work in clinical research or at statisticians with little or no experience in clinical trials.

Annual Conference 2021 of the European Forum for Good Clinical Practice
2020 and 2021 have changed the public’s and researchers’ attitude on value of clinical research and its transparency. Both used to be a ”Nice to have” and subject to good intentions but our experiences during the COVID-19 pandemic showed us the fundamental need for and benefits of clinical research excellence and reliable transparency for understanding the situation, making decisions and handling our way of living. We have also experienced a quantum leap in public interest in clinical research, biomedical research topics, methodologies and results.
The EFGCP Annual Conference 2021* will provide the platform for multi-stakeholder discussions of the changes we are currently facing and for jointly finding more efficient ways to better fulfil the clinical research and transparency needs of patients and the public in the development of new prophylactic and treatments options from finding recruiting trials to reporting of results.
