Learning outcomes

------------------------
MM: CLINICA OSTETRICA
------------------------

------------------------
MM: STATISTICA MEDICA ED EPIDEMIOLOGIA CLINICA
------------------------
The aim of the course "Medical statistics and clinical epidemiology" is to provide the theoretical and practical tools for assessing the frequency of diseases in human populations and the associated risk factors. The course therefore aims to provide expertise in epidemiology and bio-statistics. At the end of the course, the student must demonstrate to have understood the basic bio-statistical methods applied to epidemiology and the elements of an epidemiological study.

MM: METODOLOGIA DELL'ASSISTENZA OSTETRICA BASATA SULLE EVIDENZE
------------------------
The student, at the end of the course, will be able to ask himself questions about obstetric care and will know how to look for scientific evidences and translate them in Evidence Based Practices, in relation to the operational contest and to the professional experience.

The course is structured in theoretical frontal lessons (24h). Collection and organization of biomedical data: - stages of a statistical research; - population, sample and statistical units; - measurement process and measurement scales; - validity, accuracy and precision of a measuring instrument; - absolute, relative and cumulative frequencies; - one and two-way frequency tables. Graphical representation of biomedical data: - pie chart; - bar chart; - histogram; - cumulative frequency polygon. Measures of location and dispersion: - mode; - percentiles and median; - simple and weighted arithmetic mean; - range; - interquartile range; - deviance, variance and standard deviation; - coefficient of variation. An introduction to probability theory: - definition of probability; - axiomatic theory of probabilities; - rules of probability calculation; - independent and conditional probabilities; - Bernoulli and Gauss distributions. Diagnostic and screening tests: - sensitivity and specificity. The objects of epidemiology: - outcome; - measures of disease frequency (prevalence, cumulative incidence, incidence rate); - determinant. The occurrence relationship: - measures of absolute effect (attributable risk); - measures of relative effect (relative risk, odds ratio). The epidemiological studies: - ecological study; - cross-sectional study; - case-control study; - cohort study; - clinical trial. An introduction to statistical inference: - point estimate; - confidence interval; - statistical test.
