Don't Go Changing by Just a Statistical Difference #OC2018
If you know the p-value is <.05, does that mean your patient has made great change? FOTO's Outcomes Conference held in Denver, Colorado from September 27th - September 29th provides insight on all aspects involving outcomes. This is one session focused how you really know if your patient's function has really changed.
Is your patient really standing out and becoming a shining star with the amount of improvement seen by change in functional status scores?
If the score changed from 20 to 30, I have a feeling that change in score would have a p-value <.05. The change is statistically significant. Does it matter to the patient?
In this session, you will be entertained by Karon Cook as she delights you with her statistical knowledge. The chopping block will compare statistical significance to clinical relevance. In order to determine if you patient is a shining star, you need to apply the appropriate method and understand the difference between statistical and clinical significance. This is one session you won't want to miss.

In the event this conference is new to you, here are the thoughts from an attendee from last year's conference:
A common theme that ran through all presentations, helped to see the whole picture, while still providing specifics on how to get to the ultimate goal.
The content of the conference revolves around outcomes: sharing the science, helping with implementation, understanding data, using the data clinically, increasing patient engagement, marketing and discussing payer contracts focused on value based purchasing.
Still not sure if this conference is for you?
