Designing and Understanding Clinical Trial Data
Although we have had many sessions at the IAE and TDO meetings over the years, it's clear that a wide range of clinicians and media still don't understand the numbers or analysis. It has also become clear that despite these efforts we still don't have a very sophisticated understanding of these topics. If there was ever a need for increased numeracy, it could not have been more clear from the events of the last year. 
This seminar-format presentation will review a few key concepts and the evidence in an effort to give the clinician a better understanding of those events.
Learning Objectives:
  1. Understand the roles of prior probability in posterior probability.
  2. Recognize common cognitive biases that can lead to systematic errors.
  3. Understand how these issues can affect clinical decision-making and patient outcomes in practice.
