SERtalks – Germany

“Surviving or collapsing with causal inference”

November 12, 2020
10:30am – 12:30pm Eastern Time
4:30pm – 6:30pm Central European Time

This session features two speakers who will present exciting work related to the analysis of survival data in a causal inference framework. In the first talk, Dr. Rhian Daniel from Cardiff University will aim to clarify the nebulous and subtle concept of non-collapsibility of effect measures at the level of “an epidemiologist on the bus.” In the second half of the session, Professor Els Goetghebeur from Ghent University will present results of two projects related to (1) covid-19 treatment and (2) a meta-analysis of survival data in anal cancer.
