About this Unit
This unit extends the basic principles of epidemiology introduced in 401076 ‘Introduction to Epidemiology’ and equips students with practical analytical skills to design and conduct epidemiological studies. The unit considers the principle models of causation and analytical approaches to epidemiological study design and analysis. Students will use causal diagrams and evidence from the literature to develop analytic strategies for specific study designs, develop practical skills in calculating and interpreting measures of association and effect modification, and be introduced to principles and strategies for quantitative bias analysis.
