Event description


Mercer's Institute for Successful Ageing proudly presents a one day event entitled an Introduction to Biostatistics for Healthcare Professionals. Biostatistics involves the statistical processes and methods applied to the collection, analysis, and interpretation of biological data, in particular data relating to human biology, health, and medicine.

This study day is designed to teach NCHDs, Registered Nurses, Allied Health and Social Care Professionals the basic principles of biostatistics.
