ERA-EDTA CME course – “interpretation and presentation of study results”

During “conference season” I visited several conferences: ISTH, eurostroke, WEON, NVTH,  UK-CIM and the ERA-EDTA. During all conferences I got the opportunity to present my own research, except for during the ERA-EDTA. For this conference I was asked to teach in a CME course on how to perform and interpret a clinical research project. The program:

– Setting up your study: study questions and study designs
Vianda Stel, Amsterdam, the Netherlands

– Threats to validity of study findings: bias and confounding
Kitty Jager, Amsterdam, the Netherlands

– Prognosis vs aetiology
Friedo Dekker, Leiden, the Netherlands

– Interpretation and presentation of study results
Bob Siegerink, Leiden, the Netherlands

Since this is a conference on kidney diseases, the examples that I use are from that field. Although not necessarily my field, I believe that the talk can be of interest for anybody who is at the start of their research career. Please click the picture below to see the talk (slides + audio)
