Language


The course will be taught in English.
The conferences will be in English, Portuguese or Spanish.

Objectives of the course


• To discuss the characteristics of different types of surveys: population surveys, analytic studies and clinical trials, with particular emphasis in multiple sclerosis.
• To introduce to genetic epidemiology and to understand the bases of gene- environment interaction.
• To review the main aspects of statistics applied to epidemiological research, with emphasis on importance versus significance, and confounding factors and interaction.
• To exchange experiences and opinions between researchers on MS in Latin America, and introduce the discussion about the opportunity and feasibility of a muticentric survey in the region.
• To give the opportunity to discuss neuroepidemiological studies in different processing phases (preparation, implementation, data analysis, etc.) with researchers with experience
The complex building of current clinical research continues to stand on four methodological pillars – the population surveys, the case-control study, the cohort study and the clinical trial. These four methods, along with their combinations and modifications, enable us to investigate any possible cause-effect relationship across 1) biological, personal, or social factors or events, 2) symptoms, diseases, or conditions, and 3) treatments, procedures, or interventions. This 5 day course provides a review to the four methods, with emphasis on their complementarities and their relative strengths and weaknesses. As such, the course will enable the participants to better understand how evidence is constructed in clinical research. Participants will improve their ability to design, conduct, and interpret studies, and to write and read scientific papers and grant applications.

Methodology


The course methodology is based on:
• Lectures
• Example’s discussion about different types of surveys
• Analysis of papers published with different study’s designs
• Presentation of neuroepidemiological surveys carried on Latin America by the authors
• Discussion in workshops
• Conferences

A syllabus will be distributed to participants two weeks before the start of the course
