Partnership Opportunity: Developing Tools to Support Statistics Education for Non-Researchers

Patient and stakeholder engagement is a core tenant of patient-centered outcomes research. However, active engagement by stakeholders in data collection and analysis frequently requires specialized statistical expertise, resulting in many patient and non-statistical stakeholders being excluded from an important aspect of research. Dr. Yates Coley, a biostatistician and Assistant Investigator at Group Health Research Institute in Seattle, is proposing a project to develop web-based, interactive educational tools that explain statistical concepts central to patient-centered outcomes research to patients and other research stakeholders. Educational materials will be a combination of short video tutorials and interactive demonstration apps that teach and allow exploration of key ideas including randomized vs observational studies, confounding, and missing data. Dr. Coley is looking for patient and clinician stakeholder partners for this project. If you are interested, please contact us.
