Statistical advisory service at Rigshospitalet
What can we assist with
Any type of statistical problem in relation to planning a study, choosing and applying the appropriate statistical tools, and understanding results. This includes
- Study design (type of design and sample size)
- Statistical analysis (Choice of analysis, execution of analysis via dedicated statistical software, interpretation and reporting of results)
Note that we are only able to offer very limited help with dedicated data management such as data cleaning and data base programming
Who is eligible for help
Researchers and research groups at Copenhagen University Hospital and Glostrup Hospital.
PhD students and employees at the Faculty of Health and Medicinal Sciences are requested to use our regular advisory service :
How to get help
Write an email to RHfirstname.lastname@example.org
containing a brief description of your problem. Emails are handled on a weekly basis each Friday, so you can expect to receive a response to your request within a week.
How much help can you get
This is judged from a case to case basis entirely at the discretion of the statistical consultant handling your request. For larger commitments additional funding may be necessary.
If the consultant provides substantial input for a paper in terms of analyses, interpretation of results, and drafting of the paper, then coauthorship is only natural and expected. See also the Vancouver Protocol
