North of Scotland Parkinson's Research Interest Group host Drs Carl Counsell and Angus MacLeod - live Q&A - Shared screen with speaker view
Who can see your viewing activity?
I have a question for Dr Counsell please. He suggested using all patients in research however how useful would the data be if baseline measures are not being routinely done for all patients. Specially looking at things like vitamin B/glucose levels, dexa scan, swallow reflex etc
Dr Macleod spoke about statistics in the outcome of trials.Having read some papers on the trials the number of participants tends to be low particularly as the complexity of trials increases.Does this not present some very real challenges in the application of Statistics?
