Workshop profile:
The workshop is for everybody who has come into contact with the statistical technique of Kaplan-Meier survival analysis and who wants to know more about what it means. Ideally you should have encountered such analyses in the context of clinical trials. Some minimal statistical understanding is needed and terms like ‘median’, ‘mean’, ‘confidence interval’, ‘risk’ , and ‘p-value’ should not terrify you.
Objective:
The objective is to acquire a basic understanding of Kaplan-Meier analyses and to be able to interpret the resulting graphs.
Content:
The workshop will give participants an understanding of the analysis of survival in the context of clinical trials. We will learn the basics of creating and interpreting Kaplan-Meier graphs and the different elements of reporting Kaplan-Meier analyses. The appropriate graphical and tabular presentation of these analyses will be discussed, but always the focus will be on the interpretation. There will be a few group exercises during the course.
