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.
