Section

This module, along with module 2B introduces two key concepts in statistics/epidemiology, confounding and effect modification. A relation between an outcome and exposure of interested can be confounded if a another variable (or variables) is associated with both the outcome and the exposure. In such cases the crude outcome/exposure associate may over or under-estimate the association of interest. Confounding is an ever-present threat in non-randomized studies, but results of interest can be adjusted for potential confounders. ...

Section

Effect modification (Interaction), unlike confounding, is a phenomenon of "nature" and cannot be controlled by study design choice. However, it can be investigated in a manner similar to that of confounding. This set of lectures will define and give examples of effect modification, and compare and contrast it with confounding....
