This webinar will introduce participants to survival analysis. Specifically, attendees will learn when and how to use survival analysis, how to interpret the results, and practice running the statistical method; little to no knowledge of this technique is needed before attending the webinar. Handouts will also be provided and attendees will be able to practice the skills being taught both during and after the webinar has occurred. STATA will primarily be used in the demonstration, but additional information on how to perform this technique in different statistical software will be provided (i.e., SPSS).

In part 1 of this two-part webinar series, attendees will learn about the foundations of survival analysis and hazard functions. In part 2, attendees will learn about time-varying and time-invariant predictors to more accurately predict when an event will happen. Hazard functions include the probability occurring at a discrete time, time-invariant predictors do not change over a specified period, and time-varying predictors help understand changes over a specified period.

Each part approved for 1.5 hours of CFLE continuing education credit. Series approved for 3.0 hours.
