Speaker: Miguel Hernan, Harvard School of Public Health Title: "Causal inference for Dynamic Treatment Strategies: The renaissance of the g-formula" Abstract: Causal questions about the comparative effectiveness and safety of health-related interventions are becoming increasingly complex. Decision makers are now often interested in the comparison of interventions that are sustained over time and that may be personalized according to the individuals’ time-evolving characteristics. These dynamic treatment strategies cannot be adequately studied by using conventional analytic methods that were designed to…
