This workshop was a collaborative endeavour of the Edinburgh Hub and Northwest Hub.
Ordinal outcome data (such as pain scales, Quality of Life scales, etc) are incredibly common in medical research, and yet many analyses reduce them to a binary outcome measure, thus throwing away a large proportion of the information held within them.
This workshop provided detailed, practical training in ordinal methods for outcome data to researchers who will then be equipped to use these methods in current and future studies. This will mean that future studies can be more efficient and cost effective (as the analyses will have greater power), and that treatment effects will be understood in greater detail.
A mixture of talks and practical sessions including design workshops, discussion sessions, and interpretation of SAS computer code and output. Participants should be able to use all of the techniques described in practice by the end of the course. Due to practicality and time constraints, we will not have a hands-on computing session.
