AEA mini-symposium on the theme of Data Linkage. It will be held on Wednesday 6th July at 6pm at the Alfred Centre. Please see attached flyer for details. You will hear from speakers with a range of perspectives, from the role of data provider to end user. The evening will focus on the methods of data linkage, with some examples of successful projects.

Thanks to everyone who responded to our survey earlier this year. We have tried to take into account people’s responses when planning this event. The majority of respondents were keen for events to focus on epidemiological methods and there was roughly equal preference for holding events at the Doherty Institute or the Alfred Centre. You also indicated that you would be more likely to attend an event that included several speakers and was held in the evening.

All are welcome, so please forward to your departments. Light refreshments will be served, so please RSVP to help us with catering.

Registration closes 2nd August

Data linkage is a powerful and expanding area of interest to researchers and clinicians. It offers the ability to combine data sources to answer important clinical, health service and population-related questions.

With so many good quality data sources now available for linkage in Australia, this seminar is intended to provide you with important information on how linkage is performed, the ethical and governance issues surrounding the process and the data, and examples of questions which have been answered using data linkage.

At this seminar you will hear from experienced leaders in this field who manage the data linkage process and undertake research across Australian jurisdictions. We anticipate you will leave the seminar armed with necessary information to embark on a data linkage project.

Managing Linked Data in Health Research 

28-30 November 2016, 9am-5pm daily, UNSW Kensington Campus

Good data management and record keeping are integral parts of any research project, especially those involving linked or complex datasets. Most professionals in health related fields need to be familiar with aspects of good data management and practice, in order to carry out research projects investigating disease causation, population health status and health risk factors, and evaluating health interventions, policies and programs.

The course aims to support students to understand the legal and ethical issues relating to use of linked data, and to develop practical competencies in data security, data exploration, documentation of data quality, good programming and data management practices, creation of analysis ready datasets and ensuring research reproducibility. 

The course is aimed at those working in health or health related field who are interested in using linked data and in good research data management practice, including health and medical researchers, and public health and clinical practitioners. The course provides a holistic coverage of managing a linked data research project from start to finish.

 

Cost: $1,400 including GST ($900 for students).

For registration please visit the website. Registrations close on 21 November 2016.
