Week 1: Using Patient Data in Research
Week 2: Practical Skills for Records Research
Week 3: New Approaches for Records Research
- What can I learn?
These courses address the ‘why?’, the ‘what?’ and the ‘how?’ of EHR research and critically evaluate scientific opportunities and challenges, in what is being proposed as a new paradigm in medical research.
Taught by internationally recognised faculty, they span data-intensive biomedical research across diverse forms of EHR (nationally available data from primary and secondary care), regional data in hospital informatics, as well as applied EHR research.
- Who are these courses for?
The courses are intended for people from a wide range of backgrounds - including health care, epidemiology, biostatistics, health informatics, NHS IT, bioinformatics, genomics and computer science - and at different career stages, from those thinking of doing an MSc or PhD to established researchers.
- Where is the venue?
The programme will be delivered in central London at the UCL Institute of Health Informatics, 222 Euston Road, London NW1 2DA..
