Statistics, Not Sadistics: Understanding Statistics in Research

When you think of scholarly papers, do you think of easy-to-read papers providing you with valuable insights for performing your job? No? Scholarly papers often rely on statistics to communicate information. The statistics can get in the way of understanding the papers. This session will provide you with a refresher on how to interpret statistics (no calculations necessary) so you may gain useful knowledge from scholarly research like articles in ISPI’s Performance Improvement Quarterly.
