  • This event has passed.

April 20, 2022 @ 1:00 pm - 4:30 pm

The Centre for Clinical Epidemiology & Evaluation (C2E2) is offering a series of educational opportunities in Winter/Spring 2022.

Causal Inference from Observational Data


Module 1. How to construct a DAG

To develop confidence in:

  • defining a directed acyclic graph (DAG)
  • describing elements of a DAG (nodes, arrows)
  • classifying types of nodes (exogeneous, parents, exposure & outcome, parents of exposure, common parents of exposure and outcome, mediators, intervening)

To develop skills in:

  • how to summarize literature on factors influencing exposure and outcome
    constructing directed acyclic graphs in DAGitty

Module 2. How to identify biasing paths and adjustment set

To develop confidence in:

  • understanding sources of association
  • classifying paths in DAGs
  • identifying a minimal adjustment set
  • contrasting marginal versus conditional means

To develop skills in:

  • identifying a minimal adjustment set in DAGitty
