Sponsor: Section for Statistical Programmers and Analysts Sample size determination and power computations are an important aspect of study planning; they help produce studies with useful results for minimum resources in diverse application areas including clinical trials, marketing, and manufacturing. This webinar presents numerous examples to illustrate the components of a successful power and sample size analysis for proportion tests, t tests, confidence intervals, equivalence and noninferiority, survival analyses, logistic regression, repeated measures, and nonparametric tests. Attendees will learn how to compute power and sample size, perform sensitivity analyses for factors such as variability and type I error rate, and produce customized tables and graphs using the POWER and GLMPOWER procedures in SAS/STAT software.

PCORI (Patient-Centered Outcomes Research Institute) is a new grant-giving agency funded through the Affordable Health Care Act. How are they different from NIH or other funders, and what are they looking to fund? Karen Klein, a member of PCORI’s Communication and Dissemination Research study section, will share tips on what PCORI is looking for, and how (and how not!) to design projects that fit their mission.
