Workshop on Conducting Literature Review and Data Analysis in Medical Research

Medical research in one field of research which looks for new findings that helps the society at large. The vaccine for COVID is a best example, which has saved the world from the deadly virus. Researchers strive hard day and night to give the best results, which are more practical in nature. 
 
Among other aspects, data plays an important role in bringing out these results. Unlike in other research, large data sets may not be available, and researchers may have to reply on data sets of smaller sizes. Now, it is important for them to analyse the data appropriately using the right statistical method. Sometimes, the data needs to be collected from the existing literature and summarize the same to give out the results. This demands the conduct of literature review in a right way and sometimes demands the use of technology, and one must get trained in using the same. To achieve the needed expertise, the researcher must get trained in usage of a tool and one such tool which is handy for everyone is Excel and getting trained in using the same will make them independent in analysing the data. 
 
Taking these needs, we at SDMIMD have planned a two-day workshop in conduct of literature review using technology, usage of excel for data analysis and selection of the right statistical method for testing the hypotheses. It gives the participants a hands-on experience on conducting the literature review, collecting and analysing the data, and construction and testing of the hypothesis.
