With increased pressures to run smaller, quicker studies that need to deliver more answers than ever before we are tasked with designing innovative studies that can meet these demands but remain statistically sound. This 1-day meeting aims to address how we, as statisticians, can better communicate the underlying complex statistical methodology such that our clinical colleagues better understand the risks and the decisions they will be able to make at the end of the study.
