Representatives of our Statistical and Medical Writing Team attended the “Slippery Slopes: Survival Analysis” workshop, which was part of EMWA Professional Development Programme at the 54th European Medical Writers Association (EMWA) Conference.
The workshop gave us an understanding of the analysis of survival in the context of clinical trials. We learned the basics of creating and interpreting Kaplan-Meier graphs and the different elements of reporting Kaplan-Meier analyses. The appropriate graphical and tabular presentation of these analyses was discussed, but the focus was on the interpretation.
This workshop gave us a basic understanding of Kaplan-Meier analyses and helped us to be able to interpret the resulting graphs.
