Introduction to Meta-analysis in Stata, Melbourne

Monday, August 02, 2010 7:00 pm - Wednesday, August 04, 2010 3:00 am
This event does not repeat

The Murdoch Childrens Research Institute and the Centre for MEGA Epidemiology at Melbourne School of Population Health are hosting a short course "Introduction to Meta-analysis in Stata" in Melbourne on 2nd/3rd August 2010.  The course will feature Professor Jonathan Sterne from the Bristol University - see www.epi.bris.ac.uk/staff/jsterne.htm

 

The course will provide an introduction to systematic reviews and the quantitative synthesis (meta-analysis) of results from several studies that address a set of related research hypotheses. Participants will learn to implement the methods presented through a series of practical computing exercises in Stata.

 

The target audience is epidemiologists, biostatisticians and other health researchers with strong quantitative skills and substantial experience in biostatistical analysis including familiarity with multivariable regression methods.  During computing practical session participants will be provided with computing code, solutions and assistance from tutors.  It will be assumed that participants are familiar with using Stata.

 

Further details with a course outline and registration form can be found at:

Note there is an early-bird discount for participants registering before Monday June 14th.

Propensity Score Methods for Causal Effects in Non‐Experimental Studies

Tuesday, November 14, 2017 8:00 pm - Wednesday, November 15, 2017 4:00 am
This event does not repeat

A one-day workshop

Presented by Professor Elizabeth Stuart, Johns Hopkins University

14th November 2017

Melbourne School of Population and Global Health
Lecture Theatre 
Basement, 207 Bouverie Street, Carlton

Propensity scores are an increasingly common tool for estimating the effects of interventions in observational (“non‐experimental”) settings and for answering complex questions in randomized controlled trials. This one-day short course will discuss the importance of the careful design of observational studies, and the role of propensity scores in that design, with the main goal of providing practical guidance on the use of propensity scores to estimate causal effects.

Topics covered will include:

(1) How to specify and estimate the propensity score model;

(2) Selecting covariates to include in the model;

(3) Diagnostics; and

(4) Common challenges and solutions.

The methods will be illustrated using a case study using large‐scale administrative data from Denmark to estimate the effects of a suicide prevention program on suicide attempts. Software for implementing analyses using propensity scores will be briefly discussed, including resources for Stata and R. The course will also highlight recent advances in the propensity score literature, including prognostic scores, covariate balancing propensity scores, methods for non‐binary treatments (such as dosage levels of a drug or when comparing multiple programs simultaneously), and approaches to be used when there are large numbers of covariates available (as in claims or other “big” data).
