Improvements in the practice of medicine depends on the amount and quality of evidence, which in turn rely on the rigor of the research study design. Additionally, it is usually up to the clinicians to decide if a change in clinical practice is necessary after reading research reports, which may require both statistical and clinical knowledge. In this program, key considerations in study designs and statistical analysis as well as common pitfalls in result interpretation will be discussed. In Transfusion Medicine, traditional randomized controlled trials have been commonly used. However, in many cases, Bayesian approach to clinical trial design may offer better solution. Therefore, a summary of Bayesian approach to clinical design and interpretation will also be provided.
