    qualifiante Summer Class in Biostatistics and Epidemiology for Comparative Studies

    26th - 28th of June, 2017

  • Context

    Basic skills in Biostatistics and Epidemiology for comparative studies (such as randomized controlled trials, case-control or cohort studies seeking risk factors) must have been acquired in order to (1) critically read any scientific paper dealing with veterinary clinical research, (2) anticipate bias before setting up a comparative clinical study, and (3) appropriately interpret statistical results. Sometimes, and unfortunately, statistics that are needed to answer a medical question are performed by statisticians who do not fully understand the context of the medical question, and/or the clinicians sometimes do not fully interpret the results provided by the statisticians.
