A practical course in prognosis research

"What is going to happen to me?" Prognosis research can provide answers to this question and is therefore central to modern medical practice and decision making in healthcare.

Interested in prognosis research in medicine and health? Unsure about choice of method and analyses? Update your knowledge and methodological skills through a 3-day course focusing on the four main types of prognosis studies: overall prognosis research, prognostic factor research, prognostic model research and stratified care research.

The course will consist of lectures, practical sessions with statistical analysis and interpretation of results, as well as the opportunity for individual counselling on your own data set.

The course is in English and is held by experienced researchers within prognosis research. The practical sessions are based on STATA. The course is highly relevant for PhD fellows, supervisors and researchers.

Musculoskeletal Health research group and Centre for Intelligent Musculoskeletal Health (CIM) are organizing the course.
