Title: Bayesian Clinical Trial Consulting
Author(s): Scott Berry*
Companies: Berry Consultants
Keywords: Bayesian; Clinical Trials; Consulting

The clinical trial world is very frequentist; the dogma of p-values and significance is woven in the many of the foundations of clinical trials. In this talk I'll describe what its like to be a Bayesian statistician in this space. There are a number of very natural applications of Bayesian analyses and designs in clinical trials. In this talk I will focus on the communication of the Bayesian approach, the challenges, and the opportunities. I will provide example in which the Bayesian approach has been applied in clinical trials, the results, how the are communicated and the challenges. Multiple examples will be provided.

Authors who are presenting talks have a * after their name.
