  • Description: “Multi-state models are a useful extension of the epidemiologist’s toolbox. The classical illness-death model gains fundamental insights about relations between the prevalence and incidence of a chronic disease – insights beyond the folkloristic ‘prevalence odds equals incidence times duration’.  A variety of applications is presented, e.g. diabetes and rheumatic diseases in the study of dementia. With a simple extension, the illness-death model is helpful in studying diseases with a prolonged state of undiagnosed disease such as hypertension or cancer.
  • Location: Seminar room of the Neurology Clinic; Bonhoefferweg 3 entrance, 3rd floor, Charité – Campus Mitte
