Design Studies and Subject Selection
In the field of Epidemiology and Biostatistics, research design studies are separated into
two groups namely observational and experimental. Under observational study design we will
choose to employ the case-control approach. Therefore, a case-control study is regarded as an
assessment under which two groups of individuals with different outcome are selected and
compared on the merit of some underlining causal attribute. The main aim in a case-control study
is to establish whether there is an association between exposure and the outcome. As such, in this
case control study will investigate goal trough time for vancomycin as a function of age. The
objective here is to establish association between age and tough time vancomycin[ CITATION
Ren09 \l 1033 ]. With regardto experimental design studies, a retrospective study will be
employed.
Unlike a prospective design study, a retrospective study is performed after some of the
individual have developed or attained the desired outcome. The investigator/researcher is
therefore required to go back and identify a particular point in time when the participants had not
developed the desired outcome and try to establish their exposure level at that instance. It is then
the role of the investigator to determine whether a particular subject developed the desired
outcome or not. And if he/she did develop the desired outcome, it is the responsibility of the
investigator to establish when and why this took place[ CITATION Phi14 \l 1033 ].In most
instances, a retrospective study is undertaken when dealing with a group of individuals
associated with an unusual or new treatment/ disease. Essentially, retrospective studies utilize
