Research output: Contribution to conferencePaper


The presentation describes a comprehensive study to better understand the reliability of assessment of human exposure to plant protection products (PPP) in previous occupational epidemiological investigations, and to use this information to recommend improvements in scientific practice for future studies. Further, it aims to assess the reliability and external validity of surrogate measures used in these studies to assign exposure to individuals or groups of individuals on the basis of self-reported information, job/crop exposure matrices and exposure algorithms. The project will also evaluate the size and the effects of recall bias on the misclassification of exposure to PPPs and associated health effects
