During The Annals Academy, experts will explain the differences between association and causality in observational research, as well as between statistical and clinical significance in large databases. They also will describe common performance metrics for multivariable modeling and discuss options for merging STS National Database data with other longitudinal databases to obtain long-term outcomes.
