On completion of this unit, students will be able to:
This course will provide problems based on clinical questions, and the need and value of different experimental designs will be introduced and expanded. Within this context, issues with regard to randomisation, clinical study design and analysis interpretation will be developed. Efficiency issues such as sample size and power will be introduced at appropriate points in the unit.
