study is a practical course based on real world calculations where partici

obtained. There will be an opportunity for attendees also to meet and netw

mportant aspects of a clinical trial are: design\, design and design. A sa
mple size estimate is just one aspect of a clinical study design. The cour
se describes calculations for sample size estimation in the design of clin
ical trials. It will highlight how the objectives of a clinical trial will
impact on sample size calculations. The course is a practical course and
all methods will be illustrated with examples and case studies.\nAgenda\nT
here will be 4 sessions per day\, each between 1.30-2.00 hours. A session
will consist of both lectures and practicals\, involving calculators or ot
her calculation devices. \;\nDay 1\nAfter introductions \;the cour
se will give a background to sample size calculations and then go on to co
ver sample sizes in superiority trials with Normal and binary data\, endin
g the day with trials based on precision. Each lecture will be based on a
hands on practical of the methods.\nDay 2\nThe day will begin with \;s
ample sizes for cross-over trials followed by a practical which will also
enforce the lessons from day 1. The course will then cover calculations fo
r non-inferiority and equivalence trials as well as trials with ordinal da
ta and trials with survival data. It will then move on to more advanced to
pics of sample sizes for pilot trials and the design of trials which will
be adaptive\, ending the day with further statistical considerations in th
