Event Details

About the Event

Speaker: Dr. Michael Brauer

Assessing strength and quantifying risk-outcome relationships is critical for public health prioritization, policy formulation, clinical guidance and to inform personal choices related to modifiable risk factors. While meta-analyses or meta-regressions are often used as an inputs, their use in decision making is often subjective. The quantitative burden of proof risk function is introduced in the context of the Global Burden of Disease comparative risk assessment framework.

Learning Objectives:

  • Gain familiarity with the Burden of Proof Risk Function methodology
  • Discover the range of risk scores for various risk outcome relationships
