No registration required.
Join the seminar on zoom here.
Welcome to the Sahlgrenska Academy Science Seminars, a series of seminars on Thursdays at 15-16. The seminars are, during early Autumn 2021, conducted through Zoom Meetings until the end of October. Thereafter they will be conducted both physical in Arvid Carlsson lecture hall at Academicum and online through zoom.
The seminars are open to anyone interested in taking part of scientific breakthroughs and projects in the medicine and health science field. Scientists, students and other staff from GU, VGR and other organisations with the common interest of medicine and health science, welcome!
Speaker: David Bock, Dep. of Medicin, GU
Topic: Bayesian statistical methods for clinical studies – more flexibility and better answers
It is unethical and waste of resources to further pursue a clinical study when there is enough information to assess the study objectives and stop the study. The traditional approach for early stopping of clinical trials is complex due to the control of the type I error rate of incorrectly claiming treatment efficacy. The bayesian approach is more flexible and require no such correction. By enabling a probabilistic assessment of treatment effeciacy (or harm) the Bayesian approach can provide answers that are more clinically relevant than the traditional approaches to reporting of study results. The aim of this talk is to give an introduction to bayesian analysis of clinical studies.
