Professor Stephen Senn, Centre for Public Health Research, Luxembourg - Lecture Title: Statistics & Health
Statistical thinking lies at the heart of many decisions about medical care, from allocating resources for health, to determining which drugs to licence, to cause-and-effect in relation to disease. Statistical methods, and reasoning with probability, are essential to making rational decisions in medicine when we are faced with choices that have an impact on our health.
