Workshops

Statistical Course

REGISTRATION OPEN!

Register now to this live workshop on 15th September, from 12:00 to 17:00 CEST, click here and complete the webform. The course has a cost of 100 euros.

Basic course in the use of statistical methods to analyse stem cell transplantation data.
 
It has two parts,

  1. Collection of data, simple comparative analyses. Speaker: Richard Szydlo. From 12:00-14:00 CEST

In part one, how best to collect data will be discussed using examples in Excel and Access. Basic descriptive and comparative statistical methods will be shown using lecture slides and a live analysis of data using the statistical package SPSS.

This part will give an overview of optimum methods for collecting data that require statistical analysis, and then review the most commonly used statistical methods to describe and compare groups. 
 

  1. Essential survival analysis methods. Speaker: Antonella Santucci. From 15:00-17:00 CEST

In this second session we propose the following topics:

  • Interval Time of follow-up and the status variable (censored/event observations)
  • How to collect data 
  • The survival function
  • Kaplan-Meier curves and the log rank test
  • An introduction to Cox proportional hazard model
  • Demonstrative exercises will be done by  using SPSS vers.25.

Speakers

Dr Richard Szydlo, Medical Statistician, Department of Haematology, Imperial College, London, UK.

Dr Antonella Santucci. Haemathology Institut University of Study of Perugia

 

Past workshops

Haploidentical family donors with special respect to minors as donor

This workshop was jointly organized by the EBMT Donor Outcome Committee and the WBMT.

The donor outcome committee of the EBMT together with the WBMT offered this workshop to raise awareness for haploidentical donors with a special focus on minors, serving as related donors for sibling or adult relatives. The workshop was focused on expert knowledge on haploidentical transplantation in children and adults, practical management of stem cell collection in minors and ethical considerations, and offered the participants the opportunity to interact with the speakers and discuss their current praxis. To reach these goals, the Faculty comprised a multidisciplinary team of experts in transplantations and in ethical questions.

Learning objective:
  • The aim of this virtual workshop was to discuss the current praxis and related ethical issues in haploidentical stem cell donation with a special focus on minors as donors. This workshop was intended to provide thoughts probably for preparation of an EBMT recommendations.
