This workshop will answer questions including:
What is the difference between statistical significance and clinical significance and how do you make decisions about the real-world relevance of either?
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 and
- misuse and misinterpretation of P-values, including P-hacking and selective reporting
Facilitators: 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.
