For 15 years the scientific literature has repeatedly underlined the important lack of reproducibility and replicability of studies in biomedical research. As a consequence, several scientific organisations (journal, scientific societies, universities, national agencies) have identified some root causes to this issue and proposed good research practices to improve the replicability of the results. The misuse of statistical concepts, from design of studies to analysis of data to decision-making is at the heart of the crisis, even if not the only cause. In this webinar we will explain the how to understand the sequences of issues and how to fix it in order to drastically improve the replicability of the results. Through example the presentation will cover concepts such as OFAT vs DoE, p-values and Bayesian statistics and Power vs Assurance as easy opportunities to improve robustness of decisions.
4 key learnings attendees will take away from this webinar:
The value of good design of experiments
Consider Bayesian statistics to answer your question
P-values is not always what you’re looking for
Adopt a life-cycle over the long-run, not just study by 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.
