Short course: Introductory Analysis of Linked Data, The University of Sydney

Monday, June 18, 2012 7:00 pm - Saturday, June 23, 2012 3:00 am
This event does not repeat

Sydney School of Public Health

The University of Sydney

This 5-day short course introduces the topic of the analysis of linked data at an introductory to intermediate level. It acquaints health services researchers, clinical practitioners and managers with the theory and skills needed to analyse linked health data. The modular structure of the course provides participants with a theoretical grounding on each theme, followed by a hands-on practical exercise in our computer lab each day, using de-identified linked NSW data files.

Who should attend?

The course is suitable for people with no previous experience in the analysis of linked health data. However, it does assume familiarity with introductory statistical and epidemiological methods, as taught, for example, in a Master of Public Health degree course. The computing component of the unit also assumes a basic familiarity with computing syntax used in SAS and methods of basic statistical analysis of fixed-format data files. Participants must have this assumed knowledge.

Learning objectives:

On completion of this short course participants will be able to:

•    understand the theory of data linkage methods and features of comprehensive data linkage systems, sufficient to know the sources and limitations of linked health data sets, and in particular those for NSW;

•    apply epidemiological principles to the design of studies using linked data;

•    construct numerators and denominators for the analysis of disease trends and health care utilisation and outcomes;

•    assess the accuracy and reliability of data sources;

•    check data linkages and assure the quality of the study process, e.g. consistency of definitions, missing data;

•    list the issues to be considered when analysing large linked data files;

•    write syntax to prepare linked data files for analysis, derive exposure and outcome variables, relate numerators and denominators and produce results from statistical procedures.

Cost: Cost for the short course is $2880 including GST.

Discounts are available for a group of participants from the same institution or organisation, as follows:

3-4 participants: 10% discount;

5 or more participants: 20% discount.

Venue: Edward Ford Building, University of Sydney

There are a few places left in the June course.  This course will also be run in the week of 19-23 November 2012.
