Hospital Episode Statistics are probably the largest but also one of most complex sources of data about healthcare activity. They have been used by researchers to answer the widest possible range of questions about health and healthcare services. This course will focus on the practical difficulties of doing research using hospital episode statistics. You will learn how HES data are structured and coded, how to clean HES data, how to link episodes and create analysable files. You will learn from HES researchers about the strengths and weaknesses of the data, about common sources of errors, what ethical and legal obligations govern the use of the data and how the data can be linked with other datasets to answer new and different questions.

6 March, 2015 - Farr Short Courses: Phenotyping Linked Primary and Secondary Care EHR Data

Time: -

Primary and Secondary care records are increasingly being linked for use in research. These data, however are collected as part of routine care or for administrative purposes and a significant amount of work is required to build robust and accurate definitions of clinical concepts that can used to identify cases for further study. Through this practical course, you will become familiar with two contemporary primary and secondary data sources (CPRD and HES), learn what types of EHR data are collected and the different ways in which data are recorded. By the end, you will understand how to combine linked EHR data sources to define disease cases.

20 March, 2015 - Farr Short Courses: Record Linkage

Time: -

This short course is designed to give you a practical introduction to data linkage and is aimed at researchers either intending to use data linkage themselves or to analyse linked data. Examples of the uses of data linkage, data preparation, methods for linkage (including deterministic and probabilistic approaches) and issues for the analysis of linked data are covered. The main focus of this course will be health data, although the concepts will apply to many other areas. This course includes a practical example involving data to be linked, to enable you to put theory into practice. Part of 'Harnessing Electronic Health Records for Research', a unique programme of 13 inter-related short courses in the rapidly developing field of electronic health records research.

Time: 13:00:00 - 16:00:00

The NCN committee will be running a Grant Writing Workshop on Friday April 24th, 1 - 4pm. The aim of the half-day session is to help Investigators improve their applications for funding, whether they are project grants or fellowships. It will be led by two senior UCL researchers, Prof. John Wood and Prof. David McAlpine, who have extensive experience of applying for funding and of sitting on the committees that decide which science gets funded. This is a rare opportunity to improve your 'grantsmanship' skills, gain insight into how funding committees work and to receive constructive feedback on your applications. To participate in this workshop, each participant must provide an abstract, lay summary and full scientific proposal (it may be a preliminary application) for either a grant or fellowship application by April 7th 2015. Costings are NOT required.

28 April, 2015 - UCLP Centre for Neurorehabilitation symposium: goal-setting in neurorehabilitation - consensus and controversies

Time: -

During this meeting we will revisit the controversies and areas of consensus identified in a goal-setting meeting held in 2009 (results published in Clinical Rehabilitation 2009;23(4):334-44). We will hear from experts in the field, including Richard Siegert and William Levack, authors of the recently published book, ‘Rehabilitation Goal Setting: Theory, Practice and Evidence’ , and identify how far we have progressed and what is yet to be done. Before the meeting starts, participants will be asked to complete the first round of the Delphi and to complete it twice more during the course of the meeting. This meeting provides an excellent opportunity to update on current thinking, to consider your own experience in the context of the theory, and to gain a sense of future direction. CPD points will be applied for.
