Description

2018 Research Skills Seminar Series | Research Education Program


Statistical Tips for Interpreting Scientific Claims | 26 October 2018

Seminar Synopsis:

This seminar complements the earlier "Critical Appraisal of Scientific Literature" seminar and uses examples from medical literature to further unpick statistics presented in peer reviewed research papers. Within the hour, it will "help non-scientists interrogate advisers and grasp the limitations of evidence" and provide guidance on when it is time to consult the statisticians.

These tips are highly relevant for those looking for a refresher in statistical literacy or struggling to understand the seemingly unlimited sources of bias and confounding.
