Enhancing Causal Inference in the Sentinel System: An Evaluation of Targeted Learning and Propensity Scores for Confounding Control in Drug Safety

Project Title Enhancing Causal Inference in the Sentinel System: An Evaluation of Targeted Learning and Propensity Scores for Confounding Control in Drug Safety
Description

Current causal inference approaches implemented in the Sentinel System include methods based on propensity scores for control of confounding. Targeted Learning, which incorporates machine learning (ML) methods for causal inference, has been proposed as an alternative and potentially better approach.

The goal of this project is to evaluate the potential use of Targeted Learning methods within the Sentinel System compared to existing approaches.
