If you want to develop a way for clinicians to predict outcomes, then it needs to be something that can be practically implemented in frontline practice. In other words, there's no use making a hugely complex formula when a simpler one would be almost as accurate, and would actually get used. LASSO and elastic net are "regularisation" methods now available in Stata version 16. That's to say, they find a reduced set of input variables that will give a good-enough prediction. You stay in control (unlike the often-criticised stepwise regression) and can choose how to balance simplicity and accuracy.
This webinar is led by experienced medical statistician and trainer Robert Grant. At the end, you'll know how to take your prognostic regressions to the next level and try out these valuable methods.
