We are showcasing our work next week at the virtual OHDSI symposium, we are well-represented at plenary sessions and over 15 lightning talks and posters. This includes work on trends in patient-level prediction, data quality, frequent pattern mining, treatment effect heterogeneity, attention-based neural networks, explainable models, and several new-open source tools.

Important work, with contributions from our group, characterising the background incidence rates of adverse events of special interest (AESIs) in eight countries was published today in BMJ.
This large, international study found large variations across age groups, countries, and males/females in the observed rates of AESIs associated with covid-19 vaccines. This shows the need for stratification or standardisation before using background rates for covid-19 vaccin safety surveillance and suggests caution when interpreting the differences between observed and expected rates.
