Intermediate methods in pharmacoepidemiology 2021

The Danish Society for Pharmacoepidemiology is offering a one-day course on “Intermediate Methods in Pharmacoepidemiology”.  The course focuses 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 will close with a lecture on validation methods. We are fortunate that a number of very skilled researchers and excellent lecturers have accepted to teach the course. The course is free of charge for DSFE members.
