EPHD holds a workshop on "Analysis of data with a hierarchical structure using multilevel models: first steps"

Bringing together around 20 Faculty members, research assistants, graduate students, and researchers, the Department of Epidemiology and Population Health (EPHD) at the Faculty of Health Sciences (FHS) held a workshop entitled “Analysis of data with a hierarchical structure using multilevel models: first steps" on Tuesday, February 19, 2019. 

Facilitated by Dr. Aluisio Barros, Professor at Federal University of Pelotas (UFPEL), the workshop introduced the participants to multilevel models which help generate inferences that are more accurate and allow assessment of group effects and estimation of group level predictors.

The Epidemiology and Population Health Department provides training in quantitative methods, which can be used to understand population health needs and the patterns and etiology of disease, as well as to evaluate health interventions in the community. It also offers courses in methods of epidemiological surveillance and in methods of research design, data collection, analysis, as well as courses in population theory and methods of analysis that examine the link between health and population concerns.
