  • NRS Introduction to Good Clinical Practice (GCP)

    This one day course is designed either for those who have not studied Good Clinical Practice (GCP) before or those who have studied it more than two years ago. It is presented as a practical introduction to the subject and consists of a mixture of short lectures interspersed with practical activities, culminating in a monitoring workshop. The monitoring workshop allows the more abstract concepts that have been discussed throughout the day to be brought to life.

    While the principles of GCP that are covered in the course are common to a wide range of different types of clinical research the course does focus on the drug trial specific legislation. However, it also promotes the ‘GCP-mindset’ needed to satisfy inspectors and auditors, and would therefore be useful for all clinical researchers.

    This ICH E6 GCP Investigator Site Training meets the Minimum Criteria for ICH GCP Investigator Site Personnel Training identified by TransCelerate BioPharma, Inc. as necessary to enable mutual recognition of GCP training among trial sponsors.

  • Medical Statistics (Part 2) - Correlation and Regression

    Attendees to this workshop must have attended Introduction to Medical Statistics – Part 1.

    This course looks at the methods of assessment and modelling linear relationships between quantitative variables. It starts with an explanation of correlation, and the correct and incorrect use of correlation coefficients in medical research studies is illustrated using several examples. Least squares linear regression is then covered, including some of the mathematical concepts behind the model fitting. Assessment of the model goodness-of-fit and predictions will be explained by working through an example of a real research study. The theory covered here forms the basis for more complex statistical modelling procedures which will be referred to, but not taught explicitly.

    Both correlation and regression modelling are simply implemented using Minitab and course participants will work through examples using data from the lecture.

  • Medical Statistics (Part 3) – Hypothesis Testing

    Attendees to this workshop must have attended Introduction to Medical Statistics – Part 1 and Medical Statistics (Correlation and Regression) – Part 2.

    The ideas of using statistics to determine the probability of an event will be introduced and the application to formal statistical hypothesis tests will be explained. This will include a simple and clear explanation of the terminology and ideas behind the null and alternative hypotheses, p-values and confidence intervals, problems with randomisation, double-blind RCTs, Type I and Type II errors and the use of intention-to-treat and per-protocol analysis.

    The approach to determining the correct statistical test to perform will be taught, and the appropriateness of parametric vs. non-parametric tests discussed.

    Examples of the following tests will be given:

    • T-tests and Mann-Whitney tests
    • ANOVA and Kruskal-Wallis inc. posthoc comparisons and Bonferroni
    • Chi-squared and Fisher’s Exact tests.

    Participants will then have the opportunity to perform these statistical tests themselves using the statistical package Minitab.

  • Medical Statistics (Part 4) - Power and Sample

    In order to be able to do this course, participants would have to be familiar with all the concepts covered in Part 3 - Hypothesis Testing course.

    Sample size calculations should be an important component of any study protocol and is required for most grant applications. It is also necessary for ethical approval since the success or failure of a study can depend on whether the appropriate number of individuals is included. Study participants (humans or animals) are put at risk (or at least inconvenienced) and if the study is undersized, medical knowledge is not being advanced, diverting resources from more worthwhile research, and having a negative impact on future research. If the sample size is too large, more people are put at risk (or inconvenienced) than necessary, and resources are overstretched.

    This course will explain the information required to work out sample sizes and also address the problems associated with too small or large a study. Examples of computing sample sizes by hand will be illustrated for the comparison of two groups with both quantitative and qualitative outcomes of interest. Adjustments for drop outs will also be explained.

    The use of Minitab for these calculations will also be covered and participants will be able to work through lecture examples using the software. In addition, Minitab will be used to compute sample sizes for observational studies and those with more than 2 groups (ANOVA).
