Collaborate with us
We specialise in the development and delivery of large, multi-centre clinical trials.
Writing a Statistical Analysis Plan
As well as managing studies we regularly work with methodologists to undertake research aimed at improving the design and delivery of clinical trials. One such project is the Statistical Analysis Plan (SAP) Guidelines.

Increasing calls for transparency, reproducibility and data sharing within clinical trials have led to a greater emphasis on the early development and publication of well written Statistical Analysis Plans (SAPs).

To address a variation in practice a minimum set of items for SAPs was agreed with funders, regulatory authorities, journals and researchers. A downloadable version of the SAP checklist is available here.
