RealRisk works with any study which investigates the link between a

risk factor

and an

outcome

of interest and reports a relative risk (RR), hazard ratio (HR) and odds ratio (OR) or a percentage change.

The terminology used can vary – so don’t be put off if the terms ‘risk factor’ and ‘outcome’ are unfamiliar or don’t seem to apply.

Here are some examples:

Hormone Replacement Therapy (risk factor) and breast cancer (outcome)

Saturated fat consumption (risk factor) and heart disease (outcome)

Exercise (risk factor) and depression (outcome)

Social media use (risk factor) and depression (outcome)
