Statistical Tips for Interpreting Scientific Claims

Friday, 29th October 2021

Seminar Synopsis:

To accompany the Rapid Critical Appraisal of Scientific Literature seminar, this seminar tackles critical appraisal from a statistical literacy point of view based on the 2013 Nature paper by Sutherland et al. It uses examples from the medical literature to “help non-scientists interrogate advisers and grasp the limitations of evidence” and will indicate 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.

Presented by: 

Dr Julie Marsh
