Nonparametric finite mixture: applications in overcoming misclassification bias
Friday, October 20, 2023
Dr. Harrar will discuss the impact of diagnostic misclassification on estimating treatment effects and giving grossly inaccurate inferences when evaluating patient disease subtypes and how to address these problems. His proposed methods are applicable for outcomes measured in ordinal, discrete, or continuous scales; and do not require any assumptions, such as moments. Simulation results show significant advantages of the proposed methods in bias reduction, coverage, probability, and power.
