AGCPN to host dialogue for health professionals, others


The Association for Good Clinical Practice in Nigeria (AGCPN) has announced it is hosting physicians, health professionals, researchers and bio-entrepreneurs to a 3-day Biostatistics course slated to hold via Zoom from August 17 to 20.

The organisers say the course is aimed at helping concerned participants to get a firm grip on the concept of biostatistics, and by extension, strengthen their careers.

”It will bring together a number of pundits in the field of Biostatistics to have a discourse surrounding some of its key components, including Bootstrapping, multiple regression, inferential statistics, power analysis, use of NCSS, survival/reliability statistics, linear regression, exploratory statistics, statistics for nominal data, cox regression, introduction to R programming and many more,” Prof Ifeoma Okoye announced on behalf of AGCPN.
