Intro to Multistate Modeling Approaches for Analyzing Population-wide Health Administrative Data

1:00 pm to 2:30 pm EST | The session will be delivered live and online via the Gotowebinar system.

This webinar is part of the Advanced Methods Webinar Series

Multistate models offer a convenient framework for examining disease progression over time. This webinar will focus on learning multistate modeling approaches in the context of population-wide health administrative data, with specific examples using cancer screening and symptom screening data among individuals residing in Ontario, Canada.

The webinar will:

  • Describe the fundamental concepts required for building multistate models
  • Describe how multistate models are related to survival models, recurrent event models, and competing risks models
  • Discuss challenges that may arise when implementing multistate models using administrative data
  • Demonstrate and interpret a multistate model analysis under complete observation using breast cancer screening data among women in Ontario
  • Demonstrate and interpret a multistate model analysis under panel observation using symptom screening data among patients with cancer in Ontario
