Advanced Statistical Methods for Handling Event History Data: Going Beyond the Cox Model


The aim of this workshop is to provide the Investigator with information on various methodological options that are available when examining time-to-event data. Researchers will see how to go beyond the Cox model for handling time to recurrent events, competing events, and multistate events.


  • Define event history data: survival data, competing risks data, recurrent event data, multi-state data
  • Review numerous examples of how such types of data arise in clinical and health services research.
  • Discuss the relationship between multi-state data and …
    • Time-to-event data
    • Competing risks data
    • Recurrent event data
  • Introduce multi-state models, definition, notation, and assumptions (Markov and Semi-Markov)
  • Data structure for multi-state models
  • How to conduct a multi-state analysis without covariates
  • Incorporating covariates
  • How to conduct a multi-state analysis with covariates
  • Competing risks data analysis using multi-state models
  • Recurrent event data analysis using multi-state models
  • How to handle common limitations in longitudinal observational data, such as intermittent observation and interval-censoring
