Interpreting healthcare data using statistics

Wednesday 29th November 2017
Instructor: Prof Adrian Barnett, QUT

This short course is a one-day statistics refresher for people who have had some practical experience with statistics or some undergraduate statistics training. We will discuss simple study designs and some common mistakes, with practical exercises throughout the day.

The course does not use software (e.g. SPSS) as it will focus on the choice of what statistics to use and interpretation of the output, rather than on the practicalities of running analyses.

Target audience: Healthcare professionals (all levels of experience and background are welcome), policy makers, academics and students.
