Case control study definition a study that compares patients who have a disease or outcome of interest (cases) with patients who do not have the disease or outcome (controls), and looks back retrospectively to compare how frequently the exposure to a risk factor is present in each group to determine the relationship between the risk factor and the disease. Interpreting results of case-control studies if the p-value is equal to or less than a predetermined cutoff (usually 005, or a 5 in 100 probability that the finding is due to chance alone), the association is said to be statistically significant. Medical science is vast field when we talk about word medicine, we dive into sea of disease details these lecture slides are not for a medical student only, but these are useful to everyone for general knowledge as well in this particular lecture you can know about case control, study, contents, design, rates, ratio, calculation, value. Case-control studies, like many other study designs, are subject to confounding – that is, the effect of factors that are associated with both the exposure and the outcome it is important to consider the most appropriate.
Historical cohort studies should not be confused with case-control studies (also retrospective) cohorts track people forward in time from exposure to outcome case control studies trace backwards from outcome to exposure.

Case ascertainment system in place: the conduct of a case-control study may be facilitated by the availability of a case-ascertainment system a) population-based cancer registry b) hospital-based surveillance systems c) mandated disease reporting systems 3. Sample size for a case-control study: input values : this utility calculates the sample size required for a case-control study, with specified levels of confidence and power and case and control groups of equal size inputs are the expected proportion exposed in the controls, the assumed odds ratio, and the desired level of confidence and power. 3 locating cases • cases may be – undiagnosed – misdiagnosed – unavailable for study – dead (from the disease) • need to ask if cases are representative of all cases. We use stata's npnchi2 and nchi2 functions to calculated power and required sample size for case-control studies following the method described by self et al (1992) a large exemplary data set with expected risk factor frequencies among cases and controls under any alternative hypothesis is created.

The case-control study design is an excellent choice of study when the disease is rare, has a long induction period, the exposure data are difficult to obtain, or very little is known about the disease in these situations a cohort study is generally prohibitively expensive or the time frame of the study required for data collection is impractical. Postictal psychosis case control study introduction patients with long – standing history of seizures are more susceptible to develop psychiatric disorders, including postictal and interictal psychosis the case slideshow 2587369 by aldona.
Case-control study designs are used to estimate the relative risk for a disease from a specific risk factor the estimate is the odds ratio, which is a good estimate of the relative risk especially when the disease is rare case-control studies are useful when epidemiologists to investigate an. A nested case-control study is a type of case-control study that draws its cases and controls from a cohort population that has been followed for a period of time explanation a nested-case control study depends on the pre-existence of a cohort that has been followed over time. However, case-control studies, like cohort studies, can be either retrospective or prospective in a prospective case-control study, the investigator still enrolls based on outcome status, but the investigator must wait to the cases to occur. (epidemiologic research designs: case-control studies) betty c jung, rn, mph, ches learning/performance objectives to develop an understanding of: what case-control studies are the value of such studies the basic methodology pros and cons of such studies introduction epidemiology studies the distribution of disease in a number of ways.
The case-control studythis is more practical, but suffers from other disadvantages it is a retrospective study this means that (like a detective) you begin at the end, with the disease, and then work backwards, to hunt for possible causes.
