A three-day short course in Advanced Epidemiology, convened by Professors Tony Blakely and John Lynch, will be run immediately after the Population Health Congress in Adelaide. The course includes a comprehensive overview of systematic error (i.e. confounding, selection and information biases; using DAGs, counterfactual and other approaches), quantitative bias analysis, and other topics (e.g. propensity scores, direct and indirect effects). You need a basic to intermediate-level knowledge of epidemiology study design and analytical methods, systematic error and biostatistics. The course is being supported by the AEA.
