Why Biostatistics Rx?

Understanding and interpreting biostatistics and clinical trials are essential skills for all healthcare professionals. Evidence-based practice is constantly changing and healthcare professionals need to stay up to date to make the most informed, evidence-based decisions for their patients.

Unfortunately, the majority of healthcare providers and health sciences faculty cannot correctly answer basic questions about these topics. Analyzing statistical power, interpreting p-values and confidence intervals, explaining a relative risk, and describing limitations and biases of certain clinical trial designs are all difficult concepts to grasp but are essential for evaluating evidence-based literature.

The Biostatistics Rx Online Course

This online course is specifically designed to bridge the gap between the need to build the essential skill of interpreting evidence-based literature and the obvious deficit that most healthcare professionals have in this skill.

Our comprehensive online course features 35 HD videos designed to target the most important biostatistics and literature evaluation concepts in a simple, easy-to-understand format. Frequent, low-stakes assessment quizzes and exams with over 100 comprehension questions are used to ensure a rock-solid understanding of the content.

The entire course is optimized to follow the best practices of teaching and learning, including short video lengths, frequent assessment, and PowerPoint slide design to create an engaging, optimized learning environment.

The course content is organized into the following modules:

  1. Introduction and Course Overview
  2. Descriptive Statistics
  3. Intro to Inferential Statistics
  4. Hypothesis Testing
  5. Measuring Data Relationships
  6. Study Design and Evaluation
