Special interest group
Epidemiology in Government SIG
Epidemiology in Government Special Interest Group (EIGSIG)
Convenors: Laura Kirkland, Wendy Sun, Glenn Draper and Elizabeth Chalker
The main aim of this hub is to boost collaboration between the Epidemiology units operating in each of the Australian State and Territory Government Health Departments.
Jurisdictional Epidemiology units undertake similar work and face similar issues in relation to data collection, analysis methods, reporting and knowledge/research translation. The collaboration is an opportunity to share methods and issues arising from population health data analysis and to advance leadership in conducting policy-relevant research in government.
