Zhou To Give Next ODS Webinar, Dec. 17
The Office of Disease Prevention will present a Methods: Mind the Gap webinar with Dr. Xin Zhou on the use of power calculation for stepped wedge designs. This webinar will take place on Friday, Dec. 17 at 1 p.m. ET.
The stepped wedge design is increasingly popular in a wide variety of settings, including public health intervention evaluations, clinical and health service research. Zhou will introduce two new methods, using maximum likelihood and generalized estimating equations, to improve the power calculation for binary outcomes.
Zhou is an assistant professor in the department of biostatistics at the Yale School of Public Health. He received his Ph.D. in biostatistics from the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill. Prior to arriving at Yale, Zhou was a postdoc fellow at Harvard T.H. Chan School of Public Health. His research focuses on cluster randomized trials, measurement error correction, and statistical and machine learning methods in precision medicine.
Registration for the webinar is required at prevention.nih.gov/education-training/methods-mind-gap/power-calculations-stepped-wedge-designs-binary-outcomes-methods-and-software. The session will be recorded and available on the ODP website within approximately 1 week.
