Public Sentinel Training at Kaiser Permanente Center for Health Research

Project Title Public Sentinel Training at Kaiser Permanente Center for Health Research
Date
Thursday, April 11, 2019
Description

The FDA Sentinel Initiative and the Kaiser Permanente Center for Health Research are hosting a free one-day training on Sentinel’s Cohort Identification and Descriptive Analysis (CIDA) tool. CIDA is a flexible SAS-based analytic tool that can identify and extract cohorts of interest from data in the Sentinel Common Data Model format. It has been used in hundreds of FDA-initiated requests that have supported medical product safety assessments.

This full-day training will be comprised of a series of presentations and hands-on exercises exploring CIDA’s capabilities. We will review multiple requester-defined options (e.g., exposures, outcomes, continuous enrollment requirements, incidence criteria, inclusion/exclusion criteria, relevant age groups and demographic criteria such as sex and race) and guide participants through hands-on exercises on how to answer epidemiologic questions using the tool.

Registration for all attendees is required.
