Dr Kyle Sheldrick is a final year PhD candidate at the University of New South Wales investigating new spinal imaging techniques. He has an interest in research integrity, error detection and fraud detection. He recently worked as part of an international consortium to examine individual participant data for trials of ivermectin in COVID-19. His group found that approximately one third of all trials that the consortium examined had sufficient evidence to conclude deliberate fraud had taken place. They concluded that every trial showing a statistically significant survival benefit for ivermectin either did not occur, or did not occur as described.
He will discuss 7 techniques for examining individual participant data for signs of fraud (with examples), and discuss how these techniques differ between observational and interventional studies, and pitfalls to consider when making integrity assessments of study data.
