Understanding the effect of patient choice: designing a randomised trial to estimate treatment, selection and preference (choice) effects - Quantitative Research Methods Seminar

Randomised trials provide an unbiased estimate of the effect of one treatment compared to another. However, participant preferences for treatment can play an important role in how participants respond to particular treatments, their motivation to take the treatment as prescribed and can influence the reporting of side effects.

UNSW Alliance Against Ebola: Join the fight to stop Ebola - Day of action and fundraising campaign

The current Ebola outbreak in West Africa is the largest and most devastating in history. In October 2014, the World Health Organization reported that there are now 8376 cases and 4025 deaths from the disease in Guinea, Liberia and Sierra Leone since the first case report in March 2014. The spiralling epidemic in West Africa is a global health catastrophe in which we are all stakeholders. Controlling the epidemic at the source is the highest priority.

Modelling HPV prevention and cervical screening: Quantitative Research Methods Seminar

We provide a short overview of a comprehensive HPV and cervical cancer model platform (POLICY1) that has been used to perform multiple evaluations of HPV and cervical screening, including evaluations for national reviews of cervical screening in Australia, England and New Zealand. We will provide three short case studies to illustrate some different applications of the platform. Megan Smith will discuss the impact of heterogeneity on estimates of the effect of male HPV vaccination. Kate Simms will discuss an evaluation of the optimal age of ceasing cervical screening.

Synthesizing genetic markers for incorporation into clinical risk prediction tools: Quantitative Research Methods Seminar

Clinical risk prediction tools built on standard risk factors are important devices for many different diseases. Newly discovered genetic and high-dimensional-omic markers, such as single nucleotide polymorphisms (SNPs) and gene expressions, have the potential to increase the practical utility of clinical risk prediction tools. Typically, these markers are assessed among multiple large case-control studies but not in the original cohorts used to build the existing risk prediction tools, making their incorporation into those tools complicated.
