Question description

Assessing Causality

In 1965, Sir Austin Bradford Hill proposed guidelines for assessing causality. His intention was not for these to be used in a rigid manner but rather to be used as a guide.

Review  resources on Hill's guidelines for causality. Then find a review journal article dealing with an association where causality is hypothesized based on an assessment of the body of literature on a topic. Analyze this article using Hill's guidelines. Then respond to the following questions:

  • Does the article use Hill's guidelines to determine causality?
  • If so, are they each addressed thoroughly?
  • If not, describe the alternative means used for assessing causality.
  • How well do you believe Hill's guidelines work as a tool for determining causality for the association your review article addresses?
