In the Causal Inference in Health Research workshop, methodological researchers will interact with health science researchers to explore potential uses of inference techniques in this ever-developing field. Montréal, via MUHC and CHUM, is a major centre of diverse health research in Canada, and through this CRM workshop, statisticians will have the opportunity to demonstrate that they can play a vital role in study design and analysis. The workshop represents a further development in the research on causal inference in Canada, following the BIRS workshop in May 2009.
