Presenter: Dr Julie Marsh

This seminar complements Rapid Critical Appraisal of Scientific Literature seminar and uses examples from the medical literature to further unpick statistics presented in peer reviewed research papers.
It will “help non-scientist interrogate advisers and grasp the limitations of evidence” and provide guidance on when it is time to consult the statisticians.

These tips are highly relevant for those looking for a refresher in statistical literacy or struggling to understand the seemingly unlimited sources of bias and confounding.

The seminar schedule may be subject to change. Notification of any changes regarding topics, locations, presenters, and times, will be via email, website, and through EventBrite.
