"Understanding and communicating risk of rare but serious health complications – an example from living kidney donation"
Understanding and interpreting risk in the context of rare events is challenging. Specifically, clinicians face a difficult task when communicating these risks to patients, and researchers may wonder how to fairly present their findings when events are infrequent in number but important. The presentation will address issues including relative risk, absolute risk, and attributable risk using the example of living kidney donation.
