What is the difference between statistical significance and clinical significance and how do you make decisions about the real-world relevance of either?
The workshop will explore beyond the simple how-to of statistical testing to delve into the underlying concepts and rationales for hypothesis testing.
Designed for the non-statistician, it will explore ideas such as:
- How to interpret p-values and the importance of confidence intervals and effect sizes
- What does an insignificant p-value mean and should this be explored further
- Misuse and misinterpretation of p-values, including P-hacking and selective reporting
The day will be facilitated by Dr Charles Malpas from the Master of Clinical Research Program, Department of Medical Education, Melbourne Medical School, The University of Melbourne.
