Working Group 2: Evaluation of diagnostic tests with BLCMs
Initially, WG2 will summarize the existing BLCM methodology for the estimation of the Se and Sp of the diagnostic tests.
Subsequently, WG2 will identify existing gaps and propose modifications to the available methods to cover these gaps. Consequently, WG2 will also be responsible for the creation of open-source software tools for implementing the new methods and making more straightforward the application of existing.
WG2 will also be in charge of issuing guidelines for the sound application of BMLCs in routine diagnostics in the field.
Training and the development of available online material for BLCMs on the evaluation of diagnostic tests will also be the responsibility of WG2 in conjunction with WG5.
- T2.1. Perform systematic review and evaluation of existing BLCMs for the estimation of the Se and Sp of the diagnostic tests.
- T2.2. Prepare a white paper on the sound application of BLCMs for Se/Sp estimation in Life Sciences.
- T2.3. Develop training material for domain-expert scientists as well as methodologists in BMLCs.
