COURSE: Clinical Epidemiology

* Login to add events... *
Today's date is Friday, October 30, 2020
Clinical Epidemiology : Summer School - 5 day intensive unit Other events...
Clinical Epidemiology focuses on the application of epidemiologic research principles to questions relating to clinical diagnosis, prognosis and the efficacy of therapeutic interventions.

Unit outline

This five-day unit considers:

- design, conduct and analysis of clinical trials

- non-experimental study designs in the evaluation of clinical outcomes

- systematic reviews and meta-analysis

- evaluation of diagnostic tests

- economic analysis

- ethical issues in clinical research

Within an evidence-based practice framework, emphasis will be placed on the critical appraisal of the scientific research evidence that underpins clinical practice (from primary studies to clinical practice guidelines).

Overall, the course aims to improve the participant's knowledge of clinical research methods and to develop a critical approach to the incorporation of research into clinical care decisions. In addition to formal lectures and 'hands-on' tutorials, the course will promote discussion and debate about clinical research and the sharing of clinical research experiences.

One of the outcomes of the unit will be an increased level of competence in preparing a competitive research grant proposal. As such participants will be required to work within a multidisciplinary research team to develop a (hypothetical) clinical research proposal, from the refinement of the research question, to study design, data collection, statistical analysis, ethical issues and budget.

This five-day unit will consist of a combination of lectures, small-group tutorials, practical demonstrations, discussion and ‘hands-on’ experience in research proposal development.

In preparation for the teaching week, you will be sent pre-reading on 11 November 2013.

Who should attend?

Health professionals and health researchers interested in gaining a better understanding of clinical research methods and critical appraisal of the scientific literature related to clinical practice.

This unit is available for postgraduate students as a 6 point unit. It is also available for professional development. Fees apply, please visit our website for details.
