Summary: Results & Conclusion

Summary: Results & Conclusion

In this video, Prof. Mary Ferrill points out the conclusion of this section.

First, we are given an example of a drug for weight loss and type 2 diabetes. Again, we have to distinguish the data types of the results of outcomes and ADRs.

After that, we can start to fill the table. Repeat the same steps as the previous video.

Do you get to the conclusion? If not, please go back to the previous video to make sure that you are able to fill out this table.

To sum up, the design of a study internal validity is much more important than the chosen statistical tests. The best statistics won’t save a bad study, and the worst statistics can’t totally invalidate a good study. However, they can hinder potentially full interpretation of the results. Make sure that you do a good critique of the full study.

This is the end of week 1. If you have any questions, please share them below.

We will discuss how to apply clinical practical guidelines considering patients’ convenience in the next week.
