Miguel Hernán / Katalin Gémes: "Causal inference - learning what works"
Intensive Short Course, Feb 19 - 20, 2020
The course introduces students to a general framework for the assessment of comparative effectiveness and safety, with an emphasis of the use of routinely collected data in healthcare settings. The framework relies on the specification and emulation of a hypothetical randomized trial: the target trial. The course explores key challenges for causal inference and critically reviews methods proposed to overcome those challenges. The methods are presented in the context of several case studies for cancer, cardiovascular, and renal diseases.
