Although observational studies are very common in the critical care literature, they are susceptible to many types of bias, making it difficult for critical care researchers and clinicians to interpret and apply the results to practice. This webinar will highlight the key steps involved in conducting rigorous observational critical care research. Topics to be covered include: an introduction to the potential outcomes framework and how this framework can be used to design an observational study, common sources of bias, strategies to control confounding (e.g., covariate adjustment, matching, propensity scores), approaches to confounder variable selection, including the use of directed acyclic graphs, and potential approaches to sensitivity analysis.
