Robust Research through Statistics

by Marieke Jones, PhD
  • Duration: 60 Mins
  • Credits: 0.1 Midwifery CEU, 1 ACM CPD Hours
  • Handout: Yes
Abstract:

Much of the research around maternal and fetal health is conducted by physicians. However, midwives should feel equally empowered to own their data and shape the scientific story developing from that research. Developing skills that enable midwives to conduct and publish scientific manuscripts has the potential to change the established science surrounding birth and labor. In this interactive session, delegates will develop their understanding of quantitative data distributions, create a flowchart as a learning aid for selecting the most appropriate statistical approach, and implement best practices for reporting statistical results.

Learning Objectives:

Objective 1: List types of variables.

Objective 2: Describe the distributional shapes that quantitative data can take.

Objective 3: Discuss which statistical approach most closely fits a given research question.
