Quality Control 'Statistics' Workshop

The QC Statistics Workshop will be held at Royal ICC, in Bowen Hills, Brisbane QLD, on Monday 16 October 2023.  

The workshop will provide practical advice to seasoned laboratory staff infrequently involved with these statistical processes. You should have a basic understanding and access to documents but little experience applying statistics. The focus will be on the real world situations and the errors that may arise if the assumptions of the statistics are not met.
