Prediction Modelling - course outline

This workshop gives an introduction to topical issues in the use of prediction models in health.  The use of both regression models and machine learning approaches to the process of prediction model development for individuals will be discussed and illustrated with practical computing exercises in Stata and R.  The methods for model validation and evaluation of an updated model will be described including discussion of the controversial net reclassification index. 

Prerequisite knowledge for this workshop is a sound understanding of epidemiological and statistical concepts including multivariable regression models, and knowledge of either Stata or R.
