Why You Should Attend

Excellence in Epidemiology & Risk Analysis

This Excellence in Epidemiology conference will bring together epidemiology, pharmacoepidemiology, signal detection and risk management professionals to discuss strategic ways to build robust data gathering techniques to optimize their utilization and acquisition of data sources.

Attending this marcus evans conference will enable you to assess how real world data is being used in epidemiology studies, risk management systems and strategic signal detection methods. Utilizing data sets on a global scale is key to maximum retention of data, but access to global data can be restricted and pre-existing data has its limitations. This makes it difficult for epidemiology professionals to analyze and interpret the data due to lack of time and information.

Key Topics

  • Overcome data limitations to retrieve quality data for epidemiology safety research
  • Analyze safety measures for specific populations to efficiently assess benefit-risk analysis
  • Facilitate patient preference studies to determine the benefit-risk tradeoffs for treatment
  • Leverage electronic medical records (EMRs) for population health research to conduct in-depth epidemiologic investigations
  • Uncover the impact of new technology in epidemiology to adapt to new epidemiology trends
