2nd Corsican Summer School on Modern Methods in Biostatistics and Epidemiology
Statistical methods and recent advances in statistical methods for excess risk analysis
As part of the HEAR+STAT series of courses (HEAlth Research+STATistical methods and advanced methods) organised by the research unit SESSTIM, the Challenges in the Estimation of Net SURvival (CENSUR) working survival Group offers an advanced course on statistical methods for excess risk analysis.
Built on the success of the first edition, this international course “Statistical methods and recent advances in statistical methods for excess risk analysis” will be organised at Corte, Université de Corse (France) from 8th to 12th July 2019 (http://sesstim.univ-amu.fr/hearstat-2019).
The course will focus on:
- the main statistical methods and the more recent advances in statistical methods for excess risk analysis
- the transfer of methods for net survival estimations to some other specific applications (clinical research, occupational epidemiology)
The course will be taught by international researchers (France, United-Kingdom, and Slovenia) highly skilled in biostatistics, methodology, and epidemiology, from different research departments and implied in French (FRANCIM) and European (EUROCARE) networks of cancer registries.
The objectives of the course are:
- to disseminate the concepts, methods and the more recent statistical tools to analyse net survival and excess mortality
- to offer an informal and user-friendly setting of scientific exchanges in order to improve knowledge and practical skills to estimate, model, program, analyse and interpret results of excess risk analysis
The scientific programme has been designed to meet the double objective of acquiring knowledge and improving skills in order to estimate, model, program using R software, analyse and interpret results of excess risk analysis.
The target audience consists in biostatisticians, statisticians, epidemiologists; researchers and students; working in a registry of cancer, of chronic disease or in any other field relevant to these methodologies and applications.
