The Global Burden of Disease (GBD) study is the largest and most comprehensive scientific effort to measure epidemiological levels and trends worldwide. The Institute for Health Metrics and Evaluation (IHME) is hosting a workshop to train advanced learners interested in the data, methods, findings, and implications of the GBD study.
The GBD workshop is an opportunity to develop mastery of key GBD methods, tools, and data. This workshop provides hands-on learning of analytical methods, data sources, visualization tools, and policy implications and cultivates connections and knowledge sharing with an audience of engaged practitioners.
An important prerequisite of the workshop is the GBD online training, which is provided free charge with registration for the workshop.
This workshop provides the opportunity to:
- Gain in-depth knowledge of the scientific approach used in the GBD study;
- Cultivate a robust understanding of the key analytical methods utilized in the GBD study;
- Enhance expertise to use and interpret interactive data visualization tools for benchmarking, analysis, and priority setting;
- Expand networking opportunities by interacting with expert practitioners and collaborators;
