Join us online for a monthly online masterclass by one of our health research experts based in The School of Health and Related Research
Undertaking data-centric healthcare research: Experiences from urgent & emergency care systems Presenter Professor Suzanne Mason (Professor of Emergency Care)
This talk will focus on the importance of developing real world data systems for research, the value it can bring to research and the importance for improving the health and care of populations.
I will talk about my own research journey using real-world data relating to urgent and emergency care. I will describe the challenges involved in managing the governance and data acquisition hurdles, describing how we developed linked datasets and provide some examples of how it helps us to understand and improve the system.
