Aim of the course
After participation the participant:
- Is able to make a well-informed choice from different methods of exposure assessment;
- Has insight in sources of measurement errors, consequences for exposure assessment and associations observed, and methods to account for these errors;
- Is able to design and analyse evaluation studies, and to quantitatively present and interpret their results;Is able to critically evaluate exposure assessment in nutrition and related fields of biomedical research.
The course consists of a series of lectures, supported by computer-assisted exercises. Also, discussions on exposure assessment in the participant’s own research will be part of the program.
