    Real-world evidence (RWE) studies that utilize existing healthcare data to evaluate treatment effects are subject to multiple sources of bias. While confounding and data quality are often considered the major challenges in RWE generation, it has been shown that many observational studies yield biased results because of self-inflicted and avoidable errors in study design. In this webinar, we will go over major sources of avoidable bias in studies of treatment effects, including time-related bias and immortal person-time, selection bias, reverse causation, and detection bias. Strategies to identify and prevent avoidable bias will also be discussed.

    This webinar aims to provide an in-depth understanding of the electronic health records (EHR) ‎databases in Hong Kong, Japan, Taiwan, and South Korea‎.

    Presented by 

    Dr. Celine Chui (Hong Kong), Dr. Masao Iwagami (Japan), Prof Edward Lai (Taiwan), Dr. Judy Shin (South Korea)

    This webinar aims to provide an in-depth understanding of the electronic health records (EHR) databases in Hong Kong, Japan, Taiwan, and South Korea. Participants will gain valuable insights into the unique features of each database, including Hong Kong's CDARS (Clinical Data Analysis and Reporting System), Japan's MDV (Hospital-based database provided by Medical Data Vision Co., Ltd) and JMDC (claims data provided by JMDC Inc.), South Korea's HIRA (Health Insurance Review and Assessment Service) and NHID (The National Health Information Database), and Taiwan's NHIRD (National Health Insurance Research Database) and CGRD (Chang Gung Research Database). Presenters from each region will introduce these databases and showcase research done using these databases.

    Learning Objectives:

    1. Provide an overview of electronic health record databases in Asia with potential for international collaboration.

    2. Foster cross-continental international collaboration.

    This session aims to help attendees focus on challenges and insights into how operationalizing barriers can be overcome.

    Presented by Andrew Bate, VP, Head of Safety Innovation & Analytics, GSK

    Despite the hype, AI/ML is not new: it’s been used routinely in elements of Pharmacoepidemiology and Safety for decades. For all the talk of experimentation and related methodological publications, the biggest challenges are often operationalizing these activities into routine use. This webinar will focus on challenges and insights into how operationalizing barriers can be overcome, and will include examples of how AI/ML has been or is being incorporated to support routine safety surveillance activities. 

    Learning Objectives:

    • Recognize what AI is and the opportunities it affords for pharmacoepidemiology and routine safety surveillance activities
    • Understand how AI is impacting safety now and how it may do so in the future
    • Appreciate some of the implications of AI on the field

    This tutorial aims to give a practical introduction tailored for pharmacoepidemiologists on how to set up, structure, and implement analytic workflows using Git, the most frequently used distributed version-control system to date.

    Presented by Janick Weberpals, Transparency and reproducibility in pharmacoepidemiology research 

    Transparency and reproducibility in conducting healthcare database studies in pharmacoepidemiology are critical scientific requirements for meaningful research. While many advances have been made in the documentation and reporting of study protocols and results, the principles for version control and sharing of analytic code in real-world evidence are not yet as established as in other quantitative disciplines like computational biology and health informatics.

    Presented by Kathryn Rough, IQVIA - This webinar will discuss what it means for machine learning algorithms to be fair, explore potential issues, and share concrete steps for creating fair algorithms, as part of our larger goal of promoting equity in health systems.

    Machine learning has the potential to transform aspects of how healthcare and medicine are delivered, yet we know these technologies have the capacity to exacerbate existing inequalities (or introduce new ones). 

    This webinar will discuss what it means for machine learning algorithms to be fair, explore potential issues, and share concrete steps for creating fair algorithms, as part of our larger goal of promoting equity in health systems. Special attention will be paid to fairness and bias considerations for large language models (e.g., ChatGPT/GPT-4, Bard/LaMDA).
