Event description

Description

There will be (6) full-day tutorial workshops offered this year at the 2018 OHDSI Symposium in Bethesda, MD; (2) workshops are introductory and (4) are advanced. All classes will begin at 9am and end at 5pm with registration starting at 8am on that day.

Please note that Symposium Registration and Tutorial Workshop Registration are separate. You are not registered for the main symposium if you only register for a tutorial and you are not registered for a tutorial if you have only registered for the symposium. If you have not yet registered for the Symposium on Friday, October 12, please click on the following link 2018 OHDSI Symposium Registration

You will receive an Eventbrite confirmation email upon tutorial registration completion. These tickets will say free waitlist. These tickets do not guarantee you a seat in the advanced workshop. If you have been accepted into the course, you will receive an acceptance email and a revised ticket which will change the status of the ticket from "free waitlist" to "accepted" by Friday, September 7. In order to attend the advanced workshop, you will need to bring the accepted registration ticket to the course on Saturday, October 13. A free waitlist status ticket will not be admitted into the course.

Should you wish to pay for and guarantee a seat in an advanced course at this time, please return to the tutorial registration page on the OHDSI website Tutorial Registration Page and choose GUARANTEED ADVANCED WORKSHOP REGISTRATION.

Please note that all seats regardless of free or paid, are limited and are on a first-come, first-served basis.

Please visit the OHDSI website for updates to the agenda as we get closer to the event.


ADVANCED WORKSHOPS

The (4) advanced tutorial workshops will take place on Saturday, October 13, 2018. The workshop prerequisites are listed below under each course.

You may only register for (1) advanced workshop. If you register for more than one advanced workshop on a waitlist basis, we will consider them duplicates and will cancel the registrations at our discretion.


THE (4) ADVANCED WORKSHOPS ON SATURDAY, OCTOBER 13 ARE:

1)Patient-Level Prediction

This workshop is for researchers who want to design prediction studies for precision medicine and disease interception using the OHDSI tools and programmers who want to implement and execute prediction studies using the OHDSI methods library.

Course prerequisites: knowledge of OMOP CDM and Vocabularies and either 1) epidemiologic knowledge understanding of how to define cohorts or 2) R programming skills.

Faculty: Peter Rijnbeek, Jenna Reps, Seng Chan You

Participants are encouraged to watch these tutorials from past years in preparation for the tutorial:

CDM tutorial: https://www.ohdsi.org/past-events/2017-tutorials-omop-common-data-model-and-standardized-vocabularies/

Cohort definition: https://www.ohdsi.org/ohdsi-cohort-definition-and-phenotyping-tutorial-recording/

2) Population-level Effect Estimation

This workshop is for researchers who want to design estimation studies for safety surveillance and comparative effectiveness using the OHDSI tools and programmers who want to implement and execute estimation studies using the OHDSI methods library.

Course prerequisites: knowledge of OMOP CDM and Vocabularies and either 1) epidemiologic knowledge understanding of how to define cohorts or 2) R programming skills.

Faculty: Martijn Schuemie, Patrick Ryan, Marc Suchard, Jamie Weaver

Participants are encouraged to watch these tutorials from past years in preparation for the tutorial:

CDM tutorial: https://www.ohdsi.org/past-events/2017-tutorials-omop-common-data-model-and-standardized-vocabularies/

Cohort definition: https://www.ohdsi.org/ohdsi-cohort-definition-and-phenotyping-tutorial-recording/

3) Data Quality

Participants will learn how to understand and use three freely available sets of tools that assess the quality of OMOP v5 data. A conceptual framework for data quality will be presented, followed by hands-on instruction for installing and running all three sets of tools: Achilles Heel; PEDSnet DQA Toolkit; and DQe-c, DQe-v and automated outlier detection. The class will involve running these tools against a real dataset.

Course prerequisites: Participants should know the domains and vocabularies in the OMOP CDM, understand its person-level organization, the way concepts and concept relationships are used to represent local codes in a standardized fashion. Participants should also have at least beginner level R and SQL programming skills.

Faculty: Andrew Williams, Michael Kahn, Vojtech Huser, Hossein Estiri, Hanieh Razzaghi, Robert Miller

Participants are encouraged to watch this tutorial from last year in preparation for the tutorial:

4) Cohort Definition/Phenotyping

This workshop is to develop better approaches for designing and implementing phenotypes, both rule-based heuristics and increasing the use of probabilistic phenotypes. The learning objectives and technical competencies are:

• Learn principles for cohort definition and evaluation

• Develop rule-based heuristics in ATLAS

• Apply cohort definitions to analytical use cases of: disease phenotyping, exposure definition, cohort characterization, effect estimation and prediction.

• Design predictive model-based phenotype evaluation using APHRODITE.

Course prerequisites: knowledge about CDM and vocabulary AND need to know the contents of the patient-level data you are working with. This course is very important and foundational to our ability to conduct all the types of analyses, including clinical characterization, population-level prediction, and patient-level prediction.

Participants are encouraged to have access to their own patient level data, either via direct SQL or through an Atlas installation, for the duration of the tutorial.

Faculty: Chris Knoll, Gowtham Rao, RuiJun (Ray) Chen, Juan Banda
