Bateman B, Huybrechts K, Margulis A, Rothman K. Modern pregnancy pharmacoepidemiology: selected analytical considerations in the study of drug safety in pregnancy. Presentation to be given at the 35th Annual ICPE Conference; August 25, 2019. Philadelphia, PA.


In this half day course, faculty will present and discuss selected analytical considerations that are relevant for drug safety research in pregnancy.

The course will consist of four presentations by faculty, with an interactive approach using mobile technology to engage course participants in the discussion. Up to two publications illustrative of each topic will be proposed as pre-reading materials for course registrants a few weeks before the conference. Students interested in participating in a hands-on exercise on their own computer will be asked to download a spreadsheet for probabilistic sensitivity analyses prior to the conference.

The content of this course has changed from previous years. In 2015, the course provided an overview of issues that are particular to drug safety research in pregnancy. In 2016 the course focused on challenges related to exposure measurement, in 2017 the focus was on maternal and neonatal outcomes, and in 2018 the course presented pros and cons of various study designs. This year, the focus will be on selected analytical aspects of relevance to pregnancy safety research.
