This workshop is targeted at novice (e.g. registrars, Masters students) and early career researchers (e.g. family physicians in first 5-years or new faculty) as well as postgraduate supervisors. We will focus on preparing data for analysis, choosing the correct statistical tests, writing your methods and presenting your results in the form of a journal article. The presenter is using the Statistical Package for Social Sciences and may demonstrate how to perform some of the analysis in SPSS. The workshop will not deal with advanced analysis such as multivariate or factor analysis.
