Introductory Analysis of Linked Data - The University of Sydney

This 5-day short course introduces the topic of the analysis of linked data at an introductory to intermediate level. It acquaints health services researchers, clinical practitioners and managers with the theory and skills needed to analyse linked health data. The modular structure of the course provides participants with a theoretical grounding on each theme, followed by a hands-on practical exercise in our computer lab each day, using de-identified linked NSW data files.

The course is suitable for people with no previous experience in the analysis of linked health data. However, it does assume familiarity with introductory statistical and epidemiological methods, as taught, for example, in a Master of Public Health degree course. The computing component of the unit also assumes a basic familiarity with computing syntax used in SAS and methods of basic statistical analysis of fixed-format data files. Participants must have this assumed knowledge.

Semester 1: Monday 25 June – Friday 29 June 2018

Semester 2: Monday 12 November – Friday 16 November 2018
