Webinar Series: An Introduction to Data Management and Cleaning for Analysis

Population Data BC, Canada - Online

Learn how to develop a systematic approach to managing and cleaning your data for statistical analyses. This approach involves understanding the big picture first, and then developing a strategy for translating the big picture into concrete problem-solving steps. The workflow involved in these steps will be illustrated using a synthesized administrative data set and honed through a variety of applied exercises.  During the course, you will be provided with access to a variety of practical tools that will ensure you will develop a sustainable and effective workflow for all of your future data analysis projects: SAS code, case studies, web resources and more. The overall goal of the course is to give you the conceptual and practical tools you need to handle your data preparation needs with confidence.

Webinar Series: Linear and Logistic Regression

Population Data BC, Canada - Online
This webinar series is divided into two, three session courses. Background theory and live demos will be presented during the live session, with take-home practice assignments and readings provided to further explore the theory, methods and applications of linear and logistic regression.
 
The series is intended for users with some introductory knowledge of hypothesis testing and simple bivariate analysis who wish to learn about regression modeling techniques. It therefore focuses on the application of models, when and how to run and interpret the results with general formulas presented, but does not delve into their statistical theory. Course demonstrations and homework exercises will include analysis using SPSS software.

Past Events

Future Leaders In Health Data Science, March 13, 2017

Farr Institute, UK wide

The formal programme lasts for two years with an annual residential meeting, allowing participants to explore and develop the qualities and skills required for leadership in the field of health data science research. Throughout, participants will identify their individual learning needs, build peer learning groups and establish programmes of collaboration. Mentorship will be provided by The Farr Institute’s directors and other senior leaders in health data science with the second residential course providing access to leadership training. Cohort members will undertake visits to other institutions to build collaborations, further research training and develop international networks. It is expected that cohorts will maintain relationships and will have the option to return to additional residential meetings with future groups of participants after the first 2 years. The programme has an annual recruitment round and accepts 10-12 applicants each year from international Institutions.
