Statistics for clinical effectiveness

The effect of adherence to statin therapy on cardiovascular mortality: quantification of unmeasured bias using falsification end-points

Background: To determine the clinical effectiveness of statins on cardiovascular mortality in practice, observational studies are needed. Control for confounding is essential in any observational study. Falsification end-points may be useful to determine if bias is present after adjustment has taken place.

Flexible Statistical Modeling workshop

Workshop objectives
•Stimulate research in flexible modeling.
•Bring together researchers in the field to share their latest results.
•Identify interesting new problems and applications.
•Foster dialogue and future research collaborations.
•The paper “On families of distributions with shape parameters” (Jones, M.C., 2015, International Statistical Review, 83, 175-192) provides a core focus for the workshop which is primarily aimed at early career researchers.
