About the seminar:
Large-scale non-experimental studies using real-world data can be used to understand vaccine-and drug-related utilization, effectiveness, and safety. A particularly exciting aspect of this work is the ability to study various special populations –defined by age, pregnancy status, comorbid conditions, etc. –who are often excluded from randomized clinical trials. Given that little is known regarding the safety and effectiveness of commonly used vaccines and drugs in these populations, real-world evidence generated from these studies is critically needed to inform clinical practice and policy decisions. During this talk, Dr. Butler will describe the application and development of epidemiological methods in several real-world studies that focus on the prevention and treatment of common infections.
