At Statistical Methods for Epidemiological and Clinical Research from Liverpool School of Tropical Medicine the focus is on methodologies appropriate for complex surveys and observational cohort/case-control studies, but you will also examine methodologies relevant for randomised controlled clinical trials. The module concentrates on the practical application of different experimental design strategies and on the interpretation of the results of statistical analysis methodologies, rather than on any detailed mathematical derivations.
Students at Statistical Methods for Epidemiological and Clinical Research from Liverpool School of Tropical Medicine will:
- develop their ability to design, critically analyse, interpret and report the findings of a complex research project in a health-related topic.
- be given access to a large dataset that mimics the inhabitants of a fictitious community in a tropical country, and will be asked to design projects to address a series of research questions relating to tropical health issues in humans.
- select an appropriate number of individuals from the dataset, and analyse the data using standard statistical computer packages such as EpiInfo, SPSS, and R.
