This unit addresses a number of key issues that arise in the analysis of clinical trial data. It will equip students with the ability to critically evaluate and interpret trial analyses, as well as provide them with an understanding of the principles underpinning good analysis practices. Modules will provide an introduction to the interpretation of treatment effect estimates, adjusted analyses, subgroup analysis, interim analyses, and how to reach appropriate decisions about the continued evaluation of an intervention, or its recommended implementation in practice.
