“New Versus Prevalent User Designs In Pharmacoepidemiology: Time To Get Principled About When We Can Be Pragmatic”
Dr. Til Sturmer
Dr. Jess Edwards
Date: January 29, 2020
Time: 12:00 – 1:00pm EST
Online Web Conference
New user designs have become the gold standard in pharmacoepidemiology. However, limiting studies to new users reduces the sample size of epidemiologic studies and often hinders our ability to study the long-term effects of treatments. Prevalent user designs can address these issues, but also bring the potential to introduce serious bias. In this webinar, we describe the mechanics underlying this source of bias and discuss settings where a “pragmatic” prevalent user design may be warranted.
