Two-day course: advanced methods in pharmacoepidemiology.
The Danish Society for Pharmacoepidemiology is offering a new two-day course on “Advanced Methods in Pharmacoepidemiology”. The course was organized by Anton Pottegård (University of Southern Denmark) and Klaus Kaae Andersen (Danish Cancer Society).
The course focuses on both the design and analytical aspects of pharmacoepidemiological studies. This includes methods for quantifying drug utilizations and a discussion of the most common statistical models used in assessing risk and benefits associated with drug use. We also discuss common methods for confounder control, including propensity score modelling, and present methods for assessing validity of studies. Finally, an overview of common study designs is presented and discussed.
All presentations and recordings are now available below.
