Course 1: An Introduction to Primary Care Databases

Wednesday 5th - Friday 7th November 2014

This three-day course will provide an introduction to the analyses of primary care databases. Course participants will be taken through the different elements required for a successful study using primary care databases including development of code lists, data management and analysis. The course material is developed around the analyses of The Health Improvement Network (THIN), but participants can easily adapt the analyses and data management tools to other data sources. It is a practical course with a mixture of short lectures and hands-on computer based practical sessions using Stata 12 or 13. 

Cost: £550.15

Course 2: Missing Data and New Methods for Multiple Imputation of Longitudinal Electronic Health Records

Monday 10th - Tuesday 11th November 2014

This practical course will introduce participants to missing data issues in electronic health records (for example THIN and CPRD). The course will provide an introduction to the theory around missing data and provide the course participants with the tools to perform multiple imputation in Stata. The course will also give participants an opportunity to examine ways to deal with multiple imputation of longitudinal records (whether they are electronic or not). 

Cost: £350.15
