First meeting of the Routine Data Section

Category: Routine data

Location: Kings College London, Guy's Campus, 7th Floor Addison House, London SE1 1UL | Date: 23 April 2018

A group has been formed to address the issues encountered by NIHR statisticians working on complex, routine datasets. We aim to provide a networking group for statistical researchers involved in the analysis of either established databases or routine data that has not been pre-processed.

The agenda is not yet finalised but is likely to include discussions and presentations on issues/experiences in the use of CPRD data, THIN data and HES data. Participants are welcome to suggest other areas for discussion.

The event is free and refreshments and lunch will be provided.

Please register HERE.
