Robust Research through Statistics

Wednesday, October 28, 2020 - 3:00pm

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.
