The Biostatistical Consulting Service provides support in three main areas in the development, execution and reporting of clinical research studies and clinical audits:

  • General advice on study design and grant writing
  • Advice on statistical rigour and sample size
  • Assistance with statistical analysis.

Monash Health and the Monash University’s, Monash Centre for Health Research and Implementation (MCHRI) have established a Biostatistical Consulting Service for Monash Health clinical staff and postgraduate students. The provision of biostatistical support to staff of Monash Health is part of the mutual benefits of our co-location within the Monash Health Translation Precinct based at Monash Medical Centre, Clayton.
