SISS-2014 – Building on the successes of SISS-2012 and SISS-2013
SISS teaches how to measure quality and health outcomes from routine health data contained in computerised medical records. A course for: Health care researchers (from clinical and non-clinical backgrounds), data analysts, health care managers, and all interested in measuring quality and improving health outcomes.
The course is Internationally relevant and has attracted students from Canada, the Middle East, Caribbean, and across Europe.
The course is intensive and primarily designed for residential students – it starts on the Sunday afternoon and runs through to the following Friday (a full 6 days). The couse day is divided into plenary (lecture) sessions; individual computer labs; and “Scenario Based Learning (SBL)” The course culminates in the group presentations on the final Saturday of http://amigosdaterra.net/cialis-canadian-pharmacy the viagra 30 mg course. Lunches, drinks and supplements discount viagra viagra nibbles with evening lectures, course dinner and wash-up lunch are provided as part of the course fee.
The course uses the statistical package “R.” We use “R” because it is open source and students can carry on using it after without any licence fees to pay. Many large analysis firms now use R. Prior knowledge is not required – but any familiarisation will help accelerate learning on the course. See: https://clininf.eu/practicemanagement/statistics/171.html
