10537-01 - Lecture: Statistical Methods I: Understanding Statistics with R 5 CP

Semester fall semester 2018
Course frequency Every fall sem.
Lecturers Michael Simon (, Assessor)
Content Statistics is ubiquitous in medical and nursing research. Clinicians and nurse researchers need to understand basic statistical concepts, be able to interpret statistical results and conduct basic statistical analyses themselves. The course "Understanding statistics with R (1)" is the first part of a series of three courses to use the statistical programming language R to learn statistics.
The course will provide students the basis to understand and apply basic statistical techniques in the context of nursing research.
With the successful completion of the course students will be able to:
1. Understand basic concepts of statistics
2. Analyse quantitative data and apply fundamental statistical techniques
3. Understand basic statistical reporting in research papers
4. Apply principles of reproducible research
Learning objectives - A lecture-seminar-exercise format will be used, with 30-60 minute lectures, 60 minute seminars and 60 minute exercises.
- Introduction to fundamental concepts of statistics such as significance, p values, power or randomisation are explored with examples from health and nursing sciences.
- Introduction to common statistical approaches such as parametric, non-parametric tests, correlation and regression.
- Introduction to and application of principles of reproducible research.
- Practical training in R programming and basic analytical techniques.
