| Advanced methods of case number calculation

Case number planning, which is calculated to match the study design, is an important success factor for precise study results. Our colleague Christiane Lober has studied the methods.

How many patients are essential to reach meaningful study results? At the beginning of every study design stands the case number calculation. It enables you to plan and control patient inclusion.

Christiane Lober, a statistician in the team at IHF GmbH, has focused on the methods of case number calculation and case number recalculation. She benefited from an advanced seminar organised by the German Society for Medical Informatics, Biometry and Epidemiology (GMDS e.V.) in cooperation with the Institute of Medical Biometry and Informatics at the University of Heidelberg.

The training focused on advances in case number calculation methods. Various models of case number planning were shown and comprehensively discussed, according to the different study designs. Christiane Lober has introduced many ideas that will enrich our work at the IHF GmbH. In addition, she made numerous business contacts with people from research institutes all over Germany


We would like to get to know you and your ideas.
