Why missing data matter
July 25 @ 4:00 pm - 5:00 pm
It is estimated that 85% of research investment is wasted. Missing data, in particular, reduce the power, precision, and generalisability of trial findings. Moreover, they can introduce bias. It is therefore essential that we understand the risk missing data pose to palliative care trials and how we can reduce their impact.
This seminar will explore the extent and risk of bias posed by missing data in palliative care trials, the factors associated with incomplete data, and discuss recommendations for future trials.
