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.
