Description

This presentation will provide basic concepts of epidemiology, including the types of studies (experimental v. observational), the similarities and differences of cohort and case-control studies, the parameters by which epidemiology studies are analyzed (relative risk/odds ratio/confidence intervals), how epidemiology studies are used (or excluded) in courts, and practical pointers for attacking (or supporting) an epidemiology study.

Objectives

  • The rule of whether a relative risk/odds ratio greater cannot be statistically significant if the confidence interval includes one (in layman’s terms)
  • Why all epidemiology studies have some degree of bias
  • Why epidemiology studies, standing alone, cannot prove causation
  • How to attack or support an epidemiology study
