PHM requires evidence, which is often based on analysis of empirical, population-based data. Solid analysis based on various public health statistics and clinical indicators need to be carried out. This requires a thorough understanding of epidemiological and statistical concepts. In this course students will learn the pros and cons of various statistical methods. We will focus on choosing the appropriate methods, corresponding to the research questions, discuss how these methods can be carried out and the interpretation of the results. This week will be a mixture of theory and applications.

Overall aim of the course (in terms of knowledge, application and attitude of the students):

After course students:

  • Know various statistical and epidemiological concepts needed for PHM
  • Know the pros and cons of various statistical methods,
  • Can choose the appropriate methods in commonly PHM research situations.
  • Know the basics of costeffectiveness analysis
  • Are able to discuss the interpretation of the statistical results in the context of PHM
  • Are able to formulate recommendations based on statistical outcomes
  • Have developed a constructive critical attitude towards various statistical interpretations

Embedding in total PHM curriculum

This course is the 2nd course in data-analysis track. It is recommended that students have followed the courses “Fundamentals of Population Health Management: Moving from Volume to Value” and “Study Design and Risk Parameters”. The current course will be followed by a third course on “Predictive Modeling”.
