This practical training course will give a deep dive into performing Bayesian analyses in R and SAS. It is aimed at statisticians who need to be able to conduct Bayesian analyses as part of their day to day work. By the end of the course participants will be able to conduct their own analyses.
The course will begin with an introduction into Bayesian general principles including prior distribution, likelihood, posterior distribution, predictive distribution and Bayesian vs frequentist inference
The course will then progress into learning how to implement Bayesian analyses in R: Stan and SAS: PROC MCMC
Examples of using Bayesian analyses in clinical trials will be discussed
This course will have a hands-on approach so participants must bring a laptop with R (latest version if possible), R studio and SAS installed (if available). The R Stan package should also be installed.

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.
