Statistics and numbers are important in presenting
and understanding health research. They can be confusing and are
often intimidating for those who seek to read health care literature.
This course is meant for beginners and those who are very uncomfortable
with numbers and statistics. It takes a hands-on approach to and
looks at how various statistical concepts in daily life are translated
into reports of clinical research. At the end of the class, participants
will be more comfortable with the numerical aspects of clinical
research and have a broader understanding of how numbers are used
and what they say.
