Workshop: Practical methods for analysing ordinal outcome data in clinical trials
On 25th and 26th September, 2012, we will be running a workshop on analysis of ordinal outcome data in clinical trials at the John McIntyre Centre, Pollock Halls. Topics include: proportional odds, sliding dichotomy, why ordinal methods are better than binary data analysis, and which of them are best in which circumstances. We will cover design of studies, sample size calculation, model checking, fitting and interpretation. We will show how to do a meta-analysis of ordinal analysis results. The format will be a mixture of talks and practical sessions, using examples in SAS and R. The target audience is biostatisticians, epidemiologists and other health researchers with strong quantitative skills and experience in statistical analysis.
