CASE CONTROL STUDY DESIGNS
Case control studies are probably the most elegant of all epidemiological study designs. A large proportion of articles appearing in medical journals are based on case control studies. The relative ease with which casecontrol studies can be carried out is offset by the difficulty in comprehending the rationale underlying the study design.
This course is aimed at enabling the participants to design, conduct, and analyse valid case control studies.
The course will also enable the participants to critically evaluate case control studies appearing in medical journals.
