Statistical Models in Clinical Studies

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


Although statistical models serve as the foundation of data analysis in clinical studies, their interpretation requires sufficient understanding of the underlying statistical framework. Statistical modeling is inherently a difficult task because of the general lack of information of the nature of observable data. In this article, we aim to provide some guidance when using regression models to aid clinical researchers to better interpret results from their statistical models and to encourage investigators to collaborate with a statistician to ensure that their studies are designed and analyzed appropriately.
