Take this course to learn more about the basics of understanding how we are going to measure (or describe) “how much does a treatment work?”, as well as the equally important “how much harm does it do?”

Learning objectives:

    • Understand the meaning of a “treatment effect” in a randomised controlled clinical trial.
    • Understand different summary measures for treatment effects in clinical trials.
    • Understand the interpretation of confidence intervals and significance tests.
    • Understand the concept of power, its relation to study size and the importance of understanding false-negative outcomes.
