2010/2011 Program

Infection & Epidemiology Department Seminars
The question of proof and decision-making in epidemiology/public health
Organized by A. Opinel (Pharmacoepidemiolgy and Infectious Diseases/UVSQ EA449/INSERM U657) and M. Garenne (Epidemiology of Emerging Diseases), Infection & Epidemiology Department, Institut Pasteur
Venue: Institut Pasteur, 25 rue du Dr Roux 75015 Paris, Metchnikoff building, ground floor, Jules BORDET room at 2 p.m.
The aim of these research seminars is to discuss the interpretation of clinical trial results (trials, epidemiological investigations) and diverse types of proofs used in epidemiology and public health for the definition of health policies. Cases of convergence and divergence between different approaches will be highlighted. How can we translate results into public health policy? Are clinical trials always necessary? In which cases are clinical trials or epidemiological studies potentially misleading?
