The Action members from Spain are organizing a three-day training school on Introduction to Bayesian Latent Class models for health scientists in Valencia, Spain on 23 – 25 November 2022.

This 3-day event is a training school, part of the HARMONY COST Action 18208 training activities with introductory didactic teaching and hands-on practical sessions and discussion, focusing on Bayesian Statistics for the medical research community. The training will explain what the Bayes Theorem is and when we can use this approach as well as applications and advantages of Bayesian methods. We will briefly present some analyses such as Latent Class models for diagnostic test evaluation – true prevalence estimation and meta-analysis techniques.

English is the working language of this training. Participants will be guided to use the statistical language R and JAGS so it’s highly recommended to bring their laptops. Pre-course preparation will also be provided to participants who want to follow the hands-on training sessions.

Primary learning objectives of the school is that participants understand (i) Bayes Theorem – Bayesian Latent Class models, (ii) settings/cases where these methods can be applied and (iii) how to interpret the results.
