Your network

PSI offers a forum for people to discuss statistics or issues related to its practice in healthcare (and specifically in the pharmaceutical industry). There are four ways take advantage of the networking opportunities the society affords its members. You can attend our events. You can keep in touch virtually. You can participate in our special interest groups, in which like minded statisticians discuss issues of common specific interest. You can organise PSI’s activities by joining a committee or the board of directors.

Events

PSI organises a large annual conference, at least 4 scientific meetings and 3-5 training courses (including an annual Introduction to Industry course for new entrants to pharma), webinars, e-learning and a quarterly journal club – for those unable to attend face-to-face events. The scientific content of these events is second-to-none and these events also provide the opportunity to meet with fellow statisticians, discuss common problems and forge new relationships.

Online activities

We publish a fortnightly email newsletter with up-to-the minute information on industry trends and events. Our quarterly members’ magazine, SPIN, will keep you abreast of our activities and, more importantly, all the PSI gossip. You can ask a question of the 1,000+ members of our LinkedIn group if you are in need of advice.

Special Interest Groups

Our special interest groups (SIGs) are a forum for members to discuss topics of mutual interest, keep updated on developments in a particular area of industry, to organise events on their specialist field and/or to collaborate on developing the science of that field. Our current SIGs cover biomarkers, epidemiology and drug safety, health technology assessment and modelling and simulation. We also have a working party looking at the statistical implications of greater clinical trial data sharing and a group of volunteers providing a statistical briefing service on health stories in the lay media.

For further information on any of the SIGs, take a look at their pages on the website using the menu above and contact the chairs.

Committees

Our committees run the society. If you want greater input into how we do things, please volunteer. If you want to take on work outside of the daily grind of coding and meeting minutes, we could be that forum. We will find a way for your commitments to fit around your day job and to find a role that suits your interests.

The committees are charged with running our annual conference and regular scientific meetings, journal club, webinars and training courses; with coordinating industry-wide responses to regulatory issues; with promoting the value of statistics to students, the industry and the public; and with running our academic publications and the member communications that make the society a community.

If are thinking of signing up, take a look at the committee pages on the website using the menu above and contact the committee chairs.

  • Network Meta Analysis (NMA) for Statisticians - Dates: 07 – 08 Mar, 2019

    This intensive course will cover all basic and advanced aspects of synthesis of evidence from studies comparing competing treatments for the same health condition. By the end of this course participants will have an understanding of the role and potential of network meta-analysis, the principles, steps and statistical methods involved; the biases that can distort indirect comparisons and network meta-analysis.
  • PSI Webinar: HTA Submissions in the UK - Dates: 21 – 21 Jan, 2019

    There is a simple equation for access in the UK: Access = Reimbursement + Uptake. Yet, whilst a simple and logical approach, each component is challenging to achieve. This webinar focuses on the National Reimbursement side: the National Institute for Health and Care Excellence (NICE) - who they are, what is involved in the Health Technology Appraisal (HTA) assessment, how they make decisions.
