In our latest webinar Professor Adrain Barnett will discuss the crisis in health and medical statistics. Health and medical research is vital for improving the lives of Australians. At its best it involves skilled researchers testing relevant questions using rigorous methods that translate into practice. Unfortunately, much research that uses statistics fails to improve health because of long-standing issues such as inadequate training, poor regulation and perverse incentives that reward quantity over quality. Recent attempts to reproduce peer reviewed papers in health and medicine had failure rates between 75% and 90%, and an estimated 85% of research is currently lost due to poor research practices.
Although the current situation is grim there is enormous potential to increase the value of health and medical research by promoting better statistical practice.Find out more »
