Survival data, or more generally, time-to-event data (where the “event” can be death, disease, recovery, relapse or another outcome), is frequently encountered in epidemiologic studies. Censoring is a problem characteristic of most survival data and requires special data analytic techniques. This online medical course will give an introduction to survival analysis and cover many of the types of survival data and analysis techniques regularly encountered in epidemiologic research. The necessary statistical theory will be presented, but the course will focus on practical examples, with an emphasis on matching data analysis to the research question at hand. Lab sessions will give students the opportunity to apply the theory to real datasets using the free statistical software R....

Pharmacoepidemiology and Drug Safety
Pharmacoepidemiology and drug safety: a current issue
With the prospect that even more innovative drug therapies will be introduced in the coming years, society is demanding new approaches to comparative risk/benefit evaluation, as well as new concepts. Such evaluations are usually carried out only once the relevant therapies have been used widely in daily practice. The safety and risk management assessment of different drug therapies is then performed within the framework of observational epidemiological studies (e.g. to establish proof of 'safety' and proof of 'effectiveness'). This is the logical next step after randomized clinical trials, which are designed to provide evidence of a drug's 'efficacy'....

Prognosis is a key concept in patient care. However, although prognostic research is becoming increasingly important in clinical medicine, the actual methodology behind it is relatively underdeveloped.
The purpose of this course is to redress this imbalance. We will, therefore, discuss the principles and methods of non-experimental prognostic research, together with the practice of prognostic research in a clinical setting. The emphasis will be on learning about the design and statistical analysis of prognostic studies, the construction and estimation of prediction rules, the various approaches to validation, and the generalization of research results. You will also learn how to address the challenges of dealing with small data sets....

What are the key issues in the good governance of sexual and reproductive health and rights (SRHR) responses, including HIV? How can one negotiate the complex political and financial terrain when developing policies and strategic plans? Maternal health, family planning, adolescent health, abortion and HIV, and the policies and strategies that address these, are among the most internationalized and to some extent politicized of all health issues. In this blended course, that combines classroom sessions with e-learning, you identify SRHR related international agreements, development commitments, and financial mechanisms, and analyze how these influence national policies and plans and vice versa. You will perform an SRHR strategic policy review from a multi-stakeholder perspective, addressing governance and financing structures and their implications for planning and managing the responses....
