Learning with SMDM: Simulating Study Data to Support Expected Value of Sample Information Calculations
After participating in this webinar, participants should be able to:
• Present the definition of EVSI and why simulated study data are required
• Understand how to simulate study data
• Adjust study simulations for trial conduct issues, such as missingness
• Simulate study data using widely available software
The SMDM COVID-19 Modeling Committee hosted a live, free webinar titled COVID-19 Decision Models: Connecting modelers and decision makers on 28 April 2021. An open mic session showcasing SMDM members’ COVID-19-related projects followed the symposium.
View the schedule and recordings from the webinar below. Additional sessions will be added as they become available.
In addition, please take a moment to view the latest tools and resources compiled in the COVID-19 Repository.
