With increased pressures to run smaller, quicker studies that need to deliver more answers than ever before we are tasked with designing innovative studies that can meet these demands but remain statistically sound. This 1-day meeting aims to address how we, as statisticians, can better communicate the underlying complex statistical methodology such that our clinical colleagues better understand the risks and the decisions they will be able to make at the end of the study.

PSI Webinar: Wearable Technologies - Challenges and Opportunities
Wearable technologies and digital health data offer great opportunities for studying patients functionally in real life settings. Actigraphy, for example, can be used as part of clinical trials to collect continuous movement data, but the frequency of data collection results in dense datasets requiring extensive processing and signal detection. In this webinar, a panel of expert speakers will discuss how such aspects can be addressed to help realize the promise of these technologies.
Our annual PSI Medical Statistics Careers Event, will be held online using the Career Fair Plus app on Wednesday 3rd March 2021. The event will include a live online panel discussion and a virtual exhibition session.
