“Unmeasured confounding in observational studies of medical interventions” —Speaker: Prof. Rolf Groenwold (University Medical Center Utrecht)

Description: Observational studies of medical interventions are vulnerable to many forms of bias, notably confounding. During this methods colloquium, different methods to control for unmeasured confounding will be discussed. Furthermore, we will see how sensitive methods to control for confounding are to other sources of bias, in particular missing data and measurement error.
