This chapter covers the topic of prognostic studies and the application of research principles to questions of prognosis. Studies of prognosis are the core of clinical neurology and clinical epidemiology, and are central to the work of clinicians and clinician investigators. Prognosis can be regarded as a set of outcomes and their associated probabilities following the occurrence of some defining event or diagnosis that can be a symptom, sign, test result, or disease. The chapter presents information on study design principles for prognostic studies, common study biases, and statistical analysis considerations.

Keywords:   prognostic studies, prognosis, clinical neurology, clinical epidemiology, outcomes research, study design, study biases, statistical analysis considerations
