      EVENT DETAILS
      Sentinel Analytic Tools Training at the University of Pennsylvania

      Please join us for a free one-day training on Sentinel’s Cohort Identification and Descriptive Analysis (CIDA) tool. CIDA is a flexible SAS®-based analytic tool that can identify and extract cohorts of interest from data in the Sentinel Common Data Model format. It has been used in hundreds of FDA-initiated requests that have supported medical product safety assessments. This full-day training will be comprised of a series of presentations and an optional hands-on exercise exploring CIDA’s capabilities. We will review available user-defined options (e.g., exposures, outcomes, continuous enrollment requirements, incidence criteria, inclusion/exclusion criteria, relevant age groups and demographic criteria such as sex and race) and guide participants through how to answer epidemiologic questions using the tool. The main session will run until 2:30 pm. In the afternoon, participants may stay until 4:00 pm for an optional SAS-based lab session that will show participants how to parameterize the CIDA tool for a sample query. Participants should be proficient in SAS and will require the following technical components to participate in this optional session: A personal laptop and charger SAS (University Edition is acceptable)  Microsoft Excel The training will take place in the Irvine Auditorium on the UPenn medical campus, located at 3401 Spruce Street Philadelphia, PA 19104. Registration for all attendees is required. There will be a cap of 30 participants. When full, a wait list will be created. For questions or more information, please contact the Sentinel Training Team.  Organized by:  Sentinel Operations Center The Center for Pharmacoepidemiology Research and Training at the University of Pennsylvania's Perelman School of Medicine
