BIOSTATS 6008EX - Survival Analysis

External - Semester 1 - 2018

The aim of this course is to enable students to analyse data from studies in which individuals are followed up until a particular event occurs - e.g. death, cure, relapse - making use of follow-up data for those who do not experience the event, with proper attention to underlying assumptions and a major emphasis on the practical interpretation and communication of results. The content includes: Kaplan-Meier life tables; logrank test to compare two or more groups; Cox's proportional hazards regression model; checking the proportional hazards assumption; time-dependent covariates; multiple or recurrent events; and sample-size calculations for survival studies.
