Shipley and colleagues (1999) wanted to assess the cancer control rates for men treated with external beam radiation therapy alone by pooling data on 1765 men with clinically localized prostate cancer treated at six institutions. We chose to work with published studies for two reasons: First. At the conclusion of the course, participants will be able to choose an appropriate study design, calculate the sample size needed to complete a study, analyze the collected data, and communicate the results from their experiment.
