Statistical Tips for Interpreting Scientific Claims

by Dr Julie Marsh

Friday 20 October
12:30 PM - 1:30 PM

This seminar complements the earlier "Critical Appraisal of Scientific Papers" seminar (13 Oct) and uses examples from the medical literature to further unpick statistics presented in peer reviewed research papers. It will “help non-scientists interrogate advisers and grasp the limitations of evidence” and provide guidance on when it is time to consult the statisticians.

These tips are highly relevant for those looking for a refresher in statistical literacy or struggling to understand the seemingly unlimited sources of bias and confounding.
