Training

Chair: Mary Elliott

The PSI Training Committee organises five or six training courses each year. Generally our courses are designed to bring statisticians and statistical programmers working in the pharmaceutical industry up-to-date in a particular subject area. Courses are of one or two days' duration, and our presenters are often from academia with particular expertise in the course topic. We focus on application, but also provide sufficient theory to clarify the concepts behind the techniques. Delegate numbers are limited to 30 or less so that there is plenty of opportunity for questions and discussion.

In addition we work with other professional groups and run an annual training course for statisticians new to the industry.

  • PSI Webinar: Adaptive design: updated draft FDA guidance and its implications - Dates: 04 – 04 Jul, 2019

    In September 2018 the FDA published a guidance on adaptive design for clinical trials of drugs and biologics, updating (not finalizing) its initial draft from February 2010. The main focus of the webinar will be to provide an overview of its main contents, which will be presented by Jürgen Hummel (PPD). In addition, Kaspar Rufibach (Roche) will introduce an open-source statistical software for adaptive designs, RPACT (an R package that enables the design and analysis of confirmatory adaptive clinical trials). Kit Roes will also comment on the guidance from a European Regulatory perspective, which will be followed by a brief panel discussion.
