EmpiriStat Boot Camp Series101

  1. 1. SERIES 101: Introductory Courses for the Boot Camp Series in four key areas of statistics, epidemiology, clinical data management and clinical trials. Teaching Methods Knowledge and skills will be gained through:  the use of slides and presentations  small group case study sessions on the topic area  individual work on a problem for resolution  group discussions and exploration  directed question and answer periods  summary quizzes of the main topics for the day Sample Group Activities  Sample size and power case study and discussion: participants are given a hypothesis, and a sample size table, then each small group comes up with a decision of which sample size and power estimate to use.  Hypothesis and objectives: the small groups are given a hypothesis, and then they need to pick from a number of endpoints to create a meaningful comparison to study in order to test a hypothesis.  Database building small groups: each group will be given a small study and CRFs and they will be asked to write the database specifications and variable names (annotate the CRFs, outline the database).  Data analysis files small groups: Part A: each group will be given three small spreadsheets from three sites and asked to write specifications on how to merge the files; Part B: each group will be given three small spreadsheets from three DIFFERENT studies and asked to write specification on how to merge the files Boot Camp Training Series 101  CONSORT: each small group will be given a peer reviewed publication and the CONSORT statement and asked to critique the publication Essentials of Epidemiology – November 29, 2010 (0900-1630) based on the CONSORT statement. Essentials of Clinical Trials – November 30, 2010 (0900-1630)  Epidemiology case studies: each group will be given a case study to interpret point estimates and confidence intervals, RRs, and ORs. Introduction to Clinical Data Management – December 1, 2010 (0900-1630)  Small writing groups: each small group will be given a different case Statistics for Non-Statisticians – December 2, 2010 (0900-1630) and analysis summary of data, and they will create and write the abstract of that data and present to the group.

An understanding of Epidemiology enables the professionals who work in clinical research to understand the way diseases are studied through population-oriented research of the community origins of health and discovering risk factors that might be altered in a population to prevent or delay disease or death.
