Advanced Survival Analysis using R
The most commonly used methods of dealing with survival and other time-to-event data are based on the assumption of proportional hazards. But often this assumption may not be tenable, or the data structure may be more complex. This course is concerned with models for different types of data structure, or with different underlying assumptions.
Examples used will be drawn from a variety of applications in medicine and health.
Practical work will be based around the statistical software R; see https://www.r-project.org/
All training is online and will be delivered live each day between 09:00 and 17:30 (GMT+1). Delivery platform: Zoom, which may be freely accessed. Questions may be asked using Zoom's chat box. Note our online courses are delivered by a team of two presenters, meaning at least one presenter is always available to provide additional support. During presentations, the team member who is not speaking can take questions in addition to the presenter. We also use Zoom meetings rather than webinars to encourage further interaction during an online course.
Who Should Attend?
Statisticians working in medical research in public sector institutions and in the pharmaceutical and related industries, who already have some familiarity with modelling survival data.
Participants will be assumed to have a working knowledge of
How You Will Benefit
If you deal regularly with survival data and need more tools for modelling it, then this course covers a range of different survival analysis models.
What Do We Cover?
Practical work will be done in R.
Note: For practical work, participants must download and install a number of CRAN packages in R. This must be done prior to the start of the course.
