Module 3: Patient Reported Outcomes – Measuring Subjective Experience

Module 4: Day-to-Day Statistical Issues in Clinical Trials
Survey statistical concepts underlying Phase I, II and III clinical trials

Research study coordinators or other interested individuals may attend all modules or only a subset. Attendance at the didactic session for a module is required to attend the hands-on session. No prior experience with JASP or data analysis is required.
