Unlocking the power of data linkage seminar 5th August 2016
Data linkage is a powerful and expanding area of interest to researchers and clinicians. It offers the ability to combine data sources to answer important clinical, health service and population-related questions.
With so many good quality data sources now available for linkage in Australia, this seminar is intended to provide you with important information on how linkage is performed, the ethical and governance issues surrounding the process and the data, and examples of questions which have been answered using data linkage.
At this seminar you will hear from experienced leaders in this field who manage the data linkage process and undertake research across Australian jurisdictions. We anticipate you will leave the seminar armed with necessary information to embark on a data linkage project.
