BSCI425 Learning Guide Week 11, Apr 12‐15, 2010 This week we will finish causation (chapters 14 and 15) and briefly talk about ethical considerations. There is a lot of material, but much of it we have seen in various forms before. The key question is how does one go from association to causation and what are the assumptions and limitations. In chapter 14 key concepts are presented in Tables 14‐2, 14‐5 and 14‐6 as well as Figs. 14‐25 and 14‐ 26. Be sure and visit the ELMS blog this week. You should be able to describe the types of causal relationships. Chapter 15 deals with bias, confounding and interactions. Be sure you understand what each refers, their relationships to each other and their differences. Key concepts are illustrated in Tables 15‐2, 15‐7 and 15‐8. For interactions carefully work through Tables 15‐11 to 15‐16 and bear in mind the difference between attributable risks and relative risks as well as additive vs. multiplicative affects. Think about why real world data often lies between the two.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
