CAReNet PhD course: Construction of trial protocols for controlled clinical trials
March 5-9 2018, CAReNet again organizes a course on how to construct trial protocols for controlled clinical trials. The same course was held in 2015 and since it was very appreciated CAReNet's steering group has decided to give the course a second time.
This course is aimed to those of you who plan to conduct clinical research projects. Designing a good project plan is of crucial importance for creating a project with credible results. The course will review key concepts for scientific experiments, focusing on practical and theoretical design of controlled clinical trials.
The first part will cover the design of the experimental protocol, measurements hypotheses, population and selection, representative sampling, stratification and randomization procedures and study design. A significant part of the course consists of discussions of the various methods used in the planning of clinical trials, and how these methods are related to statistical models.
More information: Course leader is Professor Stig Larsen, firstname.lastname@example.org, the Norwegian University of Life Sciences and the course will take place in SLU’s Centre for Veterinary Medicine and Animal Science on campus Ultuna in Uppsala. For more information on practicalities, please contact Malin Hagberg Gustavsson, email@example.com. Last day for registration is Febrary 12.
Prerequisites: Admitted to a postgraduate program in animal science, biology, veterinary medicine, food science, nutrition, nursing, bioinformatics or similar subjects, or to a residency program (or other specialisation program) in veterinary science.
