ViCBiostat Summer School 2021

Mon. 15 Feb, 2021 9:00 am - Thu. 25 Feb, 2021 1:30 pm

chart logoRegistration is now open for our annual series of workshops in February. Held online this year, in the form of a half-day session each day, we hope to (virtually) see you there!

Week One (15-19 February): Multiple Imputation
- Introduction to Multiple Imputation for Missing Data (15th and 16th February)
- Sensitivity analyses to departures from the ‘missing at random’ assumption (17th February)
- Multiple Imputation for longitudinal data (18th and 19th February)
Presented by: Dr Cattram Nguyen (Convenor), Prof Katherine Lee, Prof Julie Simpson, Prof John Carlin, Dr Margarita Moreno-Betancur, Dr Rheanna Mainzer, Dr Ghazaleh Dashti, Dr Anurika De Silva, Ms Rushani Wijesuriya, Ms Melissa Middleton and Ms Jiaxin Zhang.

Multiple imputation has become a de facto standard for handling missing data in epidemiological and clinical research. With a combination of lectures and computer practicals (Stata and R), this workshop will cover introductory and advanced topics in multiple imputation that are critical in modern research studies.


Week Two (22-25 February): Modern Concepts in Clinical Trials: Adaptive Designs and the Estimand Framework
- An introduction to Adaptive Trial Designs (22nd February)
- Practical approaches to Adaptive Trial simulation (23rd and 24th February)
- Refining your research question: The Estimand framework (25th February)
Presented by: Prof Katherine Lee (Convenor), Dr Julie Marsh, Dr Kaushala Jayawardana, Prof Leonid Churilov, Dr Robert Mahar, Mr Michael Dymock and Ms Sabine Braat.

Trialists are increasingly turning to designs that can adapt to internal evidence or emerging external factors as the study progresses. This series of workshops provides a comprehensive manual of "How to implement an adaptive trial"; initially using lectures for a nontechnical overview and later computer practicals in both R and Stata to design and implement a simple parallel group design. There will also be a half day workshop introducing the estimand framework (ICH E9 (R1), 2019), which links the estimates of the treatment effect to the trial's objectives, accounting for events that may occur during the trial.

Mon. 1 Feb, 2021 9:00 am - Fri. 19 Feb, 2021 5:00 pm

Are you looking to develop your skills in health research, big data or cultural competence? Or update your knowledge on some very topical issues in health?

We invite you to take a look at the new 25th anniversary programme for the 2021 Public Health Summer School, hosted by our Wellington campus.

2021 Public Health Summer School
When: 1–19 February 2021
Course length: 1-2 days
Where: University of Otago, Wellington

There are 24 courses on offer including 12 new topics on a range of important areas from COVID-19 to unseen algorithms in healthcare and more. Plus many of our ever-popular courses are back including Hauora Māori, Pacific health, epidemiology and health research methods.

To see a summary of all courses available, please view the:
Summer School flyer (PDF format)

To register or to view more information on each course, please visit:

COVID contingency

We acknowledge COVID-19 brings some uncertainty for considering future events. Please be assured that we will be offering a full refund of course fees for anyone registered for a course but unable to attend due to COVID-19 restrictions. You will also see on each course webpage that there is a contingency plan should course delivery need to change.

So don’t hesitate, have a look at the great range of courses and take advantage of the 25% earlybird discount. Many courses have limited numbers so don’t miss out…register now.

chart logoRegistration is now open for our annual series of workshops in February. Held online this year, in the form of a half-day session each day, we hope to (virtually) see you there!

Week One (15-19 February): Multiple Imputation
- Introduction to Multiple Imputation for Missing Data (15th and 16th February)
- Sensitivity analyses to departures from the ‘missing at random’ assumption (17th February)
- Multiple Imputation for longitudinal data (18th and 19th February)
Presented by: Dr Cattram Nguyen (Convenor), Prof Katherine Lee, Prof Julie Simpson, Prof John Carlin, Dr Margarita Moreno-Betancur, Dr Rheanna Mainzer, Dr Ghazaleh Dashti, Dr Anurika De Silva, Ms Rushani Wijesuriya, Ms Melissa Middleton and Ms Jiaxin Zhang.

Multiple imputation has become a de facto standard for handling missing data in epidemiological and clinical research. With a combination of lectures and computer practicals (Stata and R), this workshop will cover introductory and advanced topics in multiple imputation that are critical in modern research studies.


Week Two (22-25 February): Modern Concepts in Clinical Trials: Adaptive Designs and the Estimand Framework
- An introduction to Adaptive Trial Designs (22nd February)
- Practical approaches to Adaptive Trial simulation (23rd and 24th February)
- Refining your research question: The Estimand framework (25th February)
Presented by: Prof Katherine Lee (Convenor), Dr Julie Marsh, Dr Kaushala Jayawardana, Prof Leonid Churilov, Dr Robert Mahar, Mr Michael Dymock and Ms Sabine Braat.

Trialists are increasingly turning to designs that can adapt to internal evidence or emerging external factors as the study progresses. This series of workshops provides a comprehensive manual of "How to implement an adaptive trial"; initially using lectures for a nontechnical overview and later computer practicals in both R and Stata to design and implement a simple parallel group design. There will also be a half day workshop introducing the estimand framework (ICH E9 (R1), 2019), which links the estimates of the treatment effect to the trial's objectives, accounting for events that may occur during the trial.
