The Course Statistics is the art and science of summarising data.  Statistics play an essential role in all stages of clinical research from design through to analysis and interpretation.  Clinical Trials generate large volumes of data but most of us are looking for the “punch-line”;  Did the new treatment work?  Were the two groups being compared the same of different?  We rely on statistics to help us design the most appropriate trial to answer our questions, to determine the required sample size and to interpret the results.  A poorly designed study wastes time, resources and puts patients at unnecessary risk.  A solid understanding of statistical principals is important for all team members, not just the team statistician; however for many of us stati…

The demand for public health interventions is growing as the NHS and social care system tries to ensure future sustainability. NHS, social care and public health organisations are expected to be able to economically justify any changes in care pathways they propose and there are concerns not only around cost-effectiveness but also the affordability of new initiatives. Many public sector bodies are under pressure to achieve efficiency and productivity savings in order to balance budgets. They are seeking innovations that will reduce cost pressures and they need to understand the impact of changes in different sectors, including primary, community and social care as well as acute care. There is a focus on primary and secondary prevention approaches in public health to try to reduce demand ac…
