Year 2012
Contributor/Contact Shelley Hurwitz
CTSA Harvard
Success Topic Conference/educational endeavor
Description of Success In this Harvard Catalyst Biostatistics Colloquium, three panelists and the audience interactively explored ethical issues in biostatistical practice. Dr. Hurwitz introduced the topic and presented the historical context of ethics in statistical practice. Dr. Gelfond reviewed ethical principles recently proposed specifically to guide data analysis by clinical and translational researchers (Stat Med. 2011, 30:2785-92), with examples that are familiar to many biostatisticians. Dr. Imrey added examples, commented from a systems perspective on 21st century medical research integrity concerns, and the statistical profession's responses to medical society reform efforts, and moderated audience discussion, including comments, questions, suggestions, and objections.
