Hot Topic Webinars


To share pharmacoepidemiological learnings from own research.


8 scheduled presentations per year (posted here on DSFE’s homepage). Each session lasts 45 minutes and covers one specific paper and one theoretical topic. The theoretical presentation will constitute no more than 10 minutes and cover an issue related to the paper but presented in its own right, e.g. surveillance bias, propensity score adjustment, or reverse causation. The presentation of the paper focuses on the methods applied and the analytical choices made during the project (and their underlying rationale). The aim is to give a pragmatic walkthrough to highlight the practical issues faced, more so than the overarching methodology or clinical area of interest. The paper presentation takes no more than 25 minutes, which leaves 10 minutes for questions from attendees.
