Clinical Trial Statistics for Non Statisticians
9<sup>th</sup> - 12<sup>th</sup> June 2020, Brussels, Belgium
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.
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 organised before the official start of the course.
An application has been made to the UEMS-EACCME® for CME accreditation for the ‘Clinical Trial Statistics for Non Statisticians’.
What is CME?
CME (Continuing Medical Education) can be defined as educational activities which serve to maintain, develop and increase the knowledge, skills and professional performance that physicians and allied health professionals use to provide services for patients, the public or the profession.
What does European Accreditation mean for you?
CME acreditation granted by the UEMS-EACCME® provides a guarantee to participants from all over the world that the content of the CME provided is of a high quality, unbiased and didactic and, for European doctors, that this quality will be recongnised in their home country.
The EORTC course “Clinical Trial Statistics for Non Statisticians”, Brussels, Belgium, 11/06/2019-14/06/2019 has been accredited by the European Accreditation Council for Continuing Medical Education (EACCME®) with 20 European CME credits (ECMEC®s). Each medical specialist should claim only those hours of credit that he/she actually spent in the educational activity.
Through an agreement between the Union Européenne des Médecins Spécialistes and the American Medical Association, physicians may convert EACCME® credits to an equivalent number of AMA PRA Category 1 CreditsTM.
