The Asthma UK Centre for Applied Research is delighted to invite researchers and clinicians with an interest in prediction modelling for clinical medicine to this upcoming symposium in Edinburgh.
Prediction models, both diagnostic and prognostic, are popular and widely published in medical literature, yet their use in clinical practice is relatively limited. In addition, the influence of ‘big data’ in research has led to machine learning methods for deriving and validating prediction models being increasingly reported, but how do these methods compare to statistical approaches and what are the pros and cons when designing a study?
This one day symposium, hosted by the methodology group at the Asthma UK Centre for Applied Research, offers a comprehensive programme exploring the development and evaluation of prediction models for use in clinical medicine. Designed to stimulate discussion about the methods involved in prediction modelling, the three main topics will be:
We have an excellent range of speakers from across the UK and Ireland. We are delighted to welcome Professor Tom Fahey and Professor Keith Fox as our plenary speakers.
Who can attend?
This course is open to anyone with an interest in prediction modelling for clinical medicine, though the topics are likely to appeal mostly to post-graduates (both clinical and non).
A registration fee of £7.50 includes lunch and refreshments.
