Criteria for participation: University degree in medicine, dentistry, nursing, or Master’s degree in other fields and/or postgraduate research fellows (PhD students and research-year medical students). Aim: To teach basic epidemiologic study designs, measures of occurrence and association and interpretation and inference. Please see teaching objectives for details. Learning outcome: The student should be able to define epidemiologic measures of occurrence and explain the difference between prevalence and incidence. The student should be able to define the following epidemiologic measures of association; relative risk, risk ratio, odds ratio, and rate ratio, risk difference and excess risk, including attributable risk and population attributable risk. The student should be able to define and describe strengths, weaknesses, and main applications of the designs; ecological, cross-sectional, follow up, case-control and intervention studies. The student should be able to define selection bias, information bias and confounding and be aware that evaluating the direction and strength of a possible bias or confounding is essential. The student should learn to think along the lines that, when faced with data from an analytic epidemiologic study showing an association (or no association), this might reflect; random error, bias (systematic error), including selection bias or information bias, or confounding, or, if all other possibilities seem unlikely, causality. Contents: Epidemiologic measures of occurrence and association, study designs - including macro-epidemiological, cross-sectional, case-control and cohort studies as well as experimental, randomized controlled trials - interpretation and inference, including random error, selection and information bias, confounding and effect modification. A specific session will deal with causation. Please see time schedule and teaching objectives for details.
