  • 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.
