BPE has created a very high scientific level festival dedicated to pharmacoepidemiology: the Bordeaux PharmacoEpi Festival, which has been organized since 2010 (to date, 11 editions of the festival have been successfully held).
World-class experts talk about a topic of their choice. This original master class format allows all participants to stay abreast of the major news in the discipline as well as hot topics in public health.

|Ten Persistent Research Fallacies1. The randomized trial represents the perfect study design.2. Results from case-control studies are weaker than those from cohort studies, and the results from cohort studies are weaker than those from randomized trials.3. Study subjects should be representative of target populations.4. When measuring rates, the person-time of exposure to an agent goes in the denominator.5. The control group in ca-co studies should be just like the cases except that they don’t have disease.
|Ken Rothman Boston, USA
|Ten Persistent Research Fallacies (cont’d)6. When conducting multiple comparisons, take the number of comparisons into account when obtaining p-values.7. Account for missing data with an indicator term for “missingness” in a model8. A good way to categorize a variable is by quartiles or quintiles 9. A reasonable way to interpret data is by using significance tests10. Report power when reporting the results of a study.

|A rant about everything that irritates me including data protection, privacy, consent, regulation and ethics, interspersed with singing, art, poetry, philosophy (home-spun and otherwise), fantasy worlds (where are we now) and perfect worlds (will we ever get there?) a bit about risks (to individuals) and benefits (to society), duty of care, politics, changing the world, how we and ISPE can do this and other random thoughts including expressing ideas that are not my own or new and more singing”.
