Within group vs between group analysis of trial data and the way too many studies get it wrong

In my takedown¬†analysis in the last post of two papers on morton’s neuroma, I pointed out that both studies were analysed wrong and that this should have been pulled up in the pre-publication peer review process and it wasn’t. Also, in my other blog I pulled up a number of studies on the same issue.

Understanding the difference between a ‘within group’ analysis vs a ‘between groups’ analysis can be confusing, so I put this video together describing them. Hopefully you can see what the two studies reviewed here and the multiple studies reviewed here got it wrong.
