This learning program shows how to read and understand a clinical trial or other research paper, with a particular focus on reports of cancer research.
The program begins by covering the basic types of study design and then covers the fundamental statistical analyses used by researchers to analyze and interpret the results of their research. It also covers endpoints that are commonly used in clinical trials of cancer therapies. Finally, the program describes the basic format of a research paper.
Upon completion of this learning program, you will be able to::
Describe the role of clinical trials in the drug approval process.
Distinguish the major types of study designs and their elements.
