Fundamentals of Biostatistics and Clinical Trial Design Workshop, 2018 Edition





Session Overview

The Fundamentals of Biostatistics and Clinical Trial Design workshop is recorded from the popular live workshop presented at Updates in Therapeutics® 2018. Presented by two of ACCP’s most dynamic and knowledgeable faculty, Drs. DeYoung and Segars, this workshop is ideal for clinical pharmacists who plan to sit for a Board of Pharmacy Specialties (BPS) exam, are interested in learning more about biostatistics and trial design, or wish to earn 5.0 hours of board specialty recertification credit in Ambulatory Care Pharmacy, Critical Care Pharmacy, Pediatric Pharmacy, or Pharmacotherapy.

Note: To earn recertification credit, participants must complete the web based posttest by August 15, 2018 and achieve a passing score on the test.

Program Content

The workshop is divided into two major sections: (1) an overview of descriptive versus interferential statistics, factors that influence errors and how to estimate sample size, and choosing the appropriate statistics test; and (2) observational and interventional study designs and methodologies, how to best interpret measures of association, and screenings in medicine.

Target Audience and Learning Objectives

Clinical pharmacists with an interest in statistics and trial design, clinical pharmacists who plan to sit for a BPS specialty exam, and clinical pharmacists wishing to earn recertification credit in Ambulatory Care Pharmacy, Critical Care Pharmacy, Pediatric Pharmacy, or Pharmacotherapy.

At the conclusion of the program, the participant should be able to:

  1. Apply your knowledge of descriptive statistics to determine the most appropriate way to summarize the results of your clinical trial and interpret the results of others.
  2. Compare factors that influence statistical decision errors and distinguish which are most important when determining the sample size required to achieve a predetermined study power.
  3. Select the most appropriate statistical test based on the data collected and the clinical research methodology.
  4. Differentiate and recognize the designs and structures of key studies utilized in medical and public health publications, including:
    1. Interventional Studies, including:
      • Phase 0-4 studies
      • Parallel vs. Cross-Over study designs
      • Simple vs. Factorial study designs
    2. Observational Studies, including:
      • Case-Control & Nested Case-Control studies
      • Cohort studies
      • Cross-Sectional studies
  5. Define and interpret key study-related concepts and terms.
  6. Define/Describe and calculate the most important epidemiological terms associated with healthcare and research, including:
    1. Incidence
    2. Prevalence
    3. Risk & Risk Ratio (a.k.a. Relative Risk)
    4. Odds & Odds Ratio
    5. Proper interpretation of RR/OR/HR’s & their 95% Confidence Intervals
