5th EORTC Quality of Life
It is our pleasure to invite you to the 5th EORTC Quality of Life in Cancer Clinical Trials Conference which will be held in 2019. This event will give participants the opportunity to learn about the latest topics in quality of life (QOL) and patient reported outcomes research. The two-day conference aims to bring together over 30 of the world’s most influential QOL researchers. There will be presentations on current state-of-the-art methods for instrument development and QOL measurement in international cancer clinical trials, addressing a variety of topics from designing robust measures to understanding their clinical meaning. Discussions on new tools and emerging technologies that have the potential to change the way we measure QOL, as well as on the rapidly growing field of electronic questionnaire administration.
This event is meant to stimulate progress and ensure greater patient involvement in cancer clinical trials, hence, patients and patient advocates will be speaking and providing their unique vision on QOL. All academic attendees will be able to participate for free.
Finally, we would like to thank our sponsors, including the EORTC Quality of Life Group, for supporting this conference.
We are all looking forward to welcoming you to our conference and participating in an engaging exchange of ideas.
Dr. Andrew Bottomley (Conference Chair), and Drs. Jaap Reijneveld, Michael Koller, Henning Flechtner, Krzysztof Tomaszewski and Eva Greimel (Conference Co- Chairs)

Clinical Trial Statistics for Non Statisticians
Develop the statistical knowledge required to better understand today’s cancer clinical trials!
Today, statistics are foundational 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. It will insist on the philosophy and provide a deep understanding of the statistical principles whilst avoiding too technical formulations. With this course, the 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. For those attendees, who do not have any basic training in general statistics, an optional half day introduction course to statistics and probability (incl. notions of experiment, random variable, distributions, estimations, hypothesis testing) is organized before the official start of the course.
