Lesson 3: Validating a Risk Prediction Model

1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9

In this third lesson, Glen Martin, a Health Data Scientist at the University of Manchester, covers the steps required to answer the question "Does the risk prediction model accurately estimate risk?" using the CanRisk tool as an example. You will learn:

  • The process taken to validate a risk prediction model,
  • How models contribute to broader risk mitigation in cancer early detection,
  • The role risk prediction model validation plays in improving health outcomes.
