Learning objectives of this intensive short course

By the end of this week, participants should be able to:

  • Critically assess the results of epidemiological studies on causal relationships or prediction models
  • Correctly define exposures and learn how to best represent them in models
  • Understand difference between various sources of bias (confounding, measurement error and missing data) and the way these biases may differentially affect studies on causal relationships and prediction models.
  • Describe key assumptions of methods used to control for (time-varying) confounding.
  • Describe key assumptions of methods used to handle missing observations.
  • Understand the reasons for and consequences of overfitting prediction models
  • Describe recent developments in the fields of causal research and prediction modelling
