Clinical Trials: Measurement and Analysis - NURS5067

Year - 2020

A fundamental understanding of biological measurement and the analysis of clinical trial data is critical to the application of clinical trials methods. During this unit of study, students will have the opportunity to develop skills in simple database design and management, design patient data collection tools and instruments such as case report form (CRFs) and demonstrate an ability to review and manage data to ensure data quality and integrity. Students will also be introduced to key statistical considerations in clinical trial study design and analysis, including hypothesis testing, determining sample size, statistical power and significance and an overview of common statistical tests used in clinical trials. Students will further develop an ability to interpret and critique data and statistics from clinical trials including how this information is translated into clinical practice.
