These short courses will take place at SACEMA, Stellenbosch: Introduction to R: Management, Exploration, and Communication of Data (2-6 July 2018) and Advanced Epidemiological Methods (30 July-2 August 2018).
In the coming months two short courses will be organised under the auspices of SACEMA: Bayesian Biostatistics from 4-8 April 2016 (registration deadline: 17 March 2016) and Using quantitative bias analysis with epidemiologic data from 18-20 May 2016 (early bird registration deadline: 1 April 2016).
SACEMA’s experience is that low competence and poor self-efficacy in the use of statistical software packages is a major obstacle to acquiring and expanding expertise in statistical analysis. It was therefore decided to increase our efforts to strengthen hands-on capacity and confidence in data management, exploration and visualisation, using the versatile, open-source package R. We plan to offer an intensive one-week course in June 2014 which will include computer practicals with participants’ own data. The course also offers an opportunity to conduct education research.
SACEMA organised two courses on Joint Modelling of Longitudinal and Survival Data, and Updating Scientific Knowledge through Bayesian Learning.
