HAP 735:Risk Analysis in Healthcare 

WelcomeHere you will find the syllabus, lectures and assignments for the graduate course HSCI 525 on Risk Analysis in Healthcare. These lectures start from introduction to concept of probability and take you all the way to probabilistic risk analysis. Along the way we cover concepts such as subjective probability assessment, conditional likelihood ratios, causal modeling, Bayesian networks and assessment of probabilities through time to the event. The goal is to provide you with tools you can use at work. The topics are covered without mathematical proofs but with logical reasoning to support the use of the tools. We want you to both understand the logic of probability tools and to be proficient in applying these tools to predict rare sentinel events such as wrong side surgery, security violations or terrorism risks.
