Announcing February BEMC Talk

Dear Berlin-area Epidemiological Methods Enthusiasts,

Thank you for participating in our 2018 BEMC Talks! We will be taking a short break in January and look forwarding to seeing you again in February!

You are invited to our next BEMC Talk on Wednesday, February 6th.

BEMC Talk: Wednesday, February 6th, 2019 @ 4pm

“The use of time-depending propensity score matching to address changes of treatment and covariates over time” – Lars Andersen, Aarhus, Denmark

  • Please register online: https://goo.gl/forms/jKhS5kVGIR0fTvX03
  • Description: “Time-related biases, such as immortal time bias, are well-known within the epidemiology literature. However, they continue to be a problem in the published medical literature. The lecture will focus on time-related bias and how they can be effectively addressed using a combination of risk set matching and time-dependent propensity scores. Studies with cardiac arrest, where a specific type of time-related bias (“resuscitation time bias”) is a problem, will be used as examples.”
  • Location: Virchow-Saal, Philippstr. 11, Charité – Campus Mitte (this location is only for December 2018 and February 2019)
