Expand Traditional Epidemiological Methods to Include Systems and Network Modeling
The purpose of the Life Course Visual Toolkit is to increase knowledge about life course research methods and innovative approaches by providing content that is widely available and accessible to researchers across multiple disciplines. This will be accomplished through a platform that allows synchronous and asynchronous learning opportunities. Six Webinars have been designed to advance the process recommendations outlined in, Charting the Life Course: Emerging Opportunities to Advance Scientific Approaches Using Life Course Research, which was recently accepted in the Journal of Clinical and Translational Sciences. The webinars will have three speakers, one giving a broad overview of the subject in a TED-Like talk and two taking a deep dive into the ‘How To’ do this in your own research.
Please join us for the 5th installment of the Life Course Visual Toolkit series, Building the Life Course Toolkit: From microsimulations to complexity science informed interventions. This webinar will introduce translational scientists to complex systems approaches that can be used to identify, implement, and improve interventions aimed at improving health across the life course. Dr. Roch Nianogo will show you how to apply causal inference methods to existing observational data to quantify the potential impact of hypothetical interventions. Dr. Laurence Moore will then show you how systems approaches can be applied to interventions to design interventions with sustained effects.
