Learning objectives

The following topics will be covered: formulation of the review question, searching of literature, quality assessment of studies, data extraction, flow-chart of article selection process, according to PRISMA rules.

Prerequisites and basic notions

Students should have basic knowledge of Mathematics and Statistics.

Program

Confidence interval and precision of the estimate. Methods to compute sample size necessary to achieve an adequate precision in estimating proportions.
Probability of type II error and power of a statistical test. Methods to compute sample size necessary to achieve an adequate statistical power to compare the means of two independent or dependent samples, or the proportions of two independent samples.

When and where

Lessons will take place in the computer room. Statistical power computations will be illustrated by Excel files and Stata software (Stata and R-commander). Participants will be encouraged to bring power calculation problems, to be used as examples in the class.

Learning assessment procedures

A written exam will be administered. Students will have to compute sample size in a given problem.

Students with disabilities or specific learning disorders (SLD), who intend to request the adaptation of the exam, must follow the instructions given HERE

Assessment

The exam will evaluate not only the acquisition of statistical knowledge, but also the ability to adopt it critically to solve health problems.

Criteria for the composition of the final grade

The final mark will be expressed on a scale ranging from 0 to 30. A minimum mark of 18 will be required in order to pass the exam.
