Bradford Hill criteria
Jump to navigation Jump to search
In evidence-based medicine, Bradford Hill criteria were proposed in 1965 and help assess the likelihood of causation.
The criteria are:
- Strength or magnitude of association?
- Consistency of association across studies?
- Specificity of association?
- Temporality of association?
- Plausibility based on biological knowledge?
- Biological gradient: or dose-response relationship?
- Coherence? Does the proposed association explain other observations?
- Experimental evidence?
