2-Day Seminar: Biostatistics for the Non-Statistician

September 5th and 6th, Boston, MA

Learn More About the Biostatistics for the Non-Statistician Seminar

Statistics is a useful decision-making tool in the clinical research arena. When working in a field where a p-value can determine the next steps on development of a drug or procedure, it is imperative that decision makers understand the theory and application of statistics.

Many statistical softwares are now available to professionals. However, these softwares were developed for statisticians and can often be daunting to non-statisticians. How do you know if you are pressing the right key, let alone performing the best test?

This seminar provides a non-mathematical introduction to biostatistics and is designed for non-statisticians. And it will benefit professionals who must understand and work with study design and interpretation of findings in a clinical or biotechnology setting.

The focus of the seminar is to give you the information and skills necessary to understand statistical concepts and findings as applies to clinical research, and to confidently convey the information to others.

Emphasis will be placed on the actual statistical (a) concepts, (b) application, and (c) interpretation, and not on mathematical formulas or actual data analysis. A basic understanding of statistics is desired, but not necessary.

90-Minute Virtual Webinar: Power Analysis for Sample Size Calculations

September 17th, 2019

Learn More About the Statistical Tips and Techniques for Handling Missing Data Webinar

If you work with data, you should attend this webinar. Real life data is not pretty. It is messy and often incomplete. There are many ways to handle missing data and many of these ways are not the best. There are better ways to handle missing-ness in your data. Not perfect, but better.

Just removing records (listwise deletion) with missing data can reduce the power of your study and result in Type II error (when the effects are truly there, but you don’t have enough power to achieve statistical significance). And, many of the adjustments that researchers use for handling missing data introduce bias into the data. For instance, one of the most common problems with many of the techniques is a reduction in standard error of the estimates, which results in inflated Type I errors (seeing significant findings when they do not truly exist).

Good power and low bias are hard to control to begin with. It is important to learn how to handle missing-ness to make efficient use of our data to achieve accurate and precise results. Some knowledge of linear regression is desired.

2-Hour Virtual Webinar: Hypothesis Testing, P-Values, and Inference: When Thinking Like a Statistician Makes Sensel

September 20th, 2019

Learn More About the Hypothesis Testing, P-Values & Inference Webinar

Do you become tongue tied when explaining the meaning of a p-value? Would you like to know why the null hypothesis is so important to research? Why don’t studies prove anything? Are your pretty sure about what you want to say in plain English, but you’re not sure how to say it statistically?

This webinar will briefly review the history of scientific method. We will explore the steps involved in developing a research question that can be tested with statistical hypotheses. Examples of research questions and hypotheses that can and cannot be tested will be presented.

A brief lesson in statistical theory will explain why we don’t prove anything in research, we can only make really, really, good guesses…providing we look at the problem the right way. We will also discuss three ways of interpretation that in combination can be used for better decision making, namely, p-values, effect sizes, and confidence intervals.

6-Hour Virtual Webinar: Statistics for Process Control

October 9th, 2019

Learn More About the Statistics for Process Control Webinar

This 6-hour virtual seminar includes a presentation of the steps and techniques used to quantify variability in manufacturing processes, and to assure quality products.

The concepts and information presented will be mainly concerned with statistical process control: obtaining monitoring information (data) that is objective, unbiased, and useful for decision making. An emphasis will be placed on the set-up and use of control charts.

The objective of the seminar is to provide information that can be used immediately by personnel involved in production operations, and by supervisors and management in decision making. Although the presentation involves use of statistical techniques, presentation of statistical theory will be limited to only what is needed by the attendees to understand and implement processes and monitoring tools within the statistical framework.

Presented examples will include an emphasis on the manufacturing processes and quality assurance needs of product in the medical device and pharmaceutical industries.

Process control is constantly evolving. Therefore, historical concepts, current trends and regulatory requirements will be discussed. The presentation of statistical charts and analyses, graphical techniques for planning, trouble-shooting and problem solving will also be presented.
