Intermediate methods in pharmacoepidemiology 2021

The Danish Society for Pharmacoepidemiology held a one-day course on “Intermediate Methods in Pharmacoepidemiology” on Thursday November 4th, 2021.  The course focused on ways to control for confounding including use of propensity scores, through active comparator new user designs, self-controlled design and the use of instrumental variable analysis. The course closed with a lecture on validation methods. We are fortunate that a number of very skilled researchers and excellent lecturers had accepted to teach the course. In below program are slides and video presentations from the presenters who have agreed to share these online.

Course responsible: Lina Mørk, Tea Skaaby and Mette Bliddal
