2018 CESBC Evaluation Conference

What’s in your Evaluation Toolbox?

Evaluation practice is rapidly evolving and new tools and methods are constantly emerging. What’s a busy evaluator to do? Come learn from your peers!

The 2018 CESBC Evaluation Conference is being held in Vancouver, BC, on Friday, November 30. This conference is about opening up our evaluation toolboxes and sharing with each other what we know and what we’ve learned. The goal is for every attendee to come away from the conference with something new to apply in their work. The conference is an opportunity to strengthen skill sets, build up your network of evaluators, and make new connections. Our focus is on building CESBC’s culture as an innovative and supportive evaluation community.

CHÉOS is a sponsor of CESBC 2018. The conference will be followed by the CESBCY Annual General Meeting (4:30–5:40 PM).

From ROC to RIC: New metrics for documenting the clinical utility of (bio)markers and risk prediction scores

Abstract: The Precision Medicine movement and arrival of vast “omics” data have accelerated the development of (bio)markers and clinical prediction models. There are many tools for communicat­ing the capacity of a marker in risk concentration, including the Receiver Operating Characteristic (ROC) curve, Predictiveness Curve, and Lorenz Curve. However, these metrics largely focus on studying ‘risk’. It is time to move on from the estimates of concentration risk to estimates of ‘concentration of benefit’ in marker development. We introduce a new graphical method: the Relative Impact Characteristic (RIC) curve. RIC visually rep­resents the concept of concentration of benefit when the marker is used to inform a specific treatment decision. The proposed­ tool juxtaposes two fundamental quantities associated with marker implementation: the population-level impact of marker-informed treatment and the relative size of the treated popula­tion. We establish analogies between the ROC and the RIC curves around the interpretations of shape, slopes, and area under the curve. A case study in COPD shows how the data from a clinical trial can be used to construct the RIC curve and evaluate the clinical utility of a prediction model for exacerbations.

Work in Progress (WiP) presentations take place at St. Paul’s Hospital in the Hurlburt Auditorium on alternating Wednesdays from 12:00–1:00 PM. These seminars provide investigators with an opportunity to present ongoing research, obtain feedback from colleagues and peers, and make new connections for their projects. Talks are open, and a light lunch is served.
