The UK Faculty of Public Health has recently taken ownership of the Health Knowledge resource. This new, advert-free website is still under development and there may be some issues accessing content. Additionally, the content has not been audited or verified by the Faculty of Public Health as part of an ongoing quality assurance process and as such certain material included maybe out of date. If you have any concerns regarding content you should seek to independently verify this.

Outcome Measures


Before we start, take a few minutes to write down a few examples of outcomes you have seen in clinical trials (e.g. white blood cell count, death). For each one, consider the type of data you would collect and what sort of summary measure you might use to report the results. Try to find different sorts of outcomes which require different types of numerical analysis.

When you are finished, click the "Our thoughts" link below for some reflections on this exercise.
