Multi-state models

Multi-state models allow us to model complex disease processes over time. Through the modelling of transitions between disease states, accounting for competing events at each transition, we can gain a much richer understanding of patient trajectories and how risk factors impact over the entire disease pathway

  • Specialist training course
  • Experienced faculty
  • Carefully designed curriculum
  • Lectures combining methods and examples
