Intermediate Medical Stats 2023 (Survival Analysis)

Description

Intermediate Medical Statistics

Modelling time to event outcomes: Survival Analysis - 5th April 2023


Survival analysis (or time-to-event analysis) allows the examination of the relationship between patient information recorded at some origin (e.g. referral to secondary care, disease diagnosis) and a binary outcome that may or may not occur at some later time point (e.g. death, recovery, hospital discharge). Some underlying theory will be explained, but only enough to facilitate interpretation of the analysis. Those with no knowledge of multivariable statistical modelling are strongly encouraged to attend the previous two Intermediate Medical Statistics courses before attending this course. Topics covered will be censoring and the hazard function; estimating the survivor function using the Kaplan-Meier method; comparing groups using the log-rank test; the Cox proportional hazards model; Model checking procedures.
