  • PHRN Data Linkage in a Pandemic

    Thursday, 09 April 2020 

    In the past few months, we have seen how the movement of people has helped SARS-CoV-2travel quickly around the world. The analysis of data brought together from different sources is a key component in understanding and managing this pandemic. Australia’s high quality administrative data and systematic approach to data linkage give us a strong advantage in fighting this virus. We can analyse data sets within and across all jurisdictions to provide our governments with the information they need to plan for and manage health services.

  • IPDLN 2020 Conference Update

    Thursday, 26 March 2020 

    From IPDLN :

    We have been monitoring the COVID-19 pandemic closely as it evolves across the globe and particularly here in Australia.
    From IPDLN Organising Committee:

    We believe that at this stage it is not possible for the IPDLN 2020 Conference to proceed as previously planned at the Adelaide Convention Centre on 27-29 October 2020.

    We are actively looking at alternatives and we will provide further information shortly. Options include cancellation, postponement or a virtual conference.

    Given this uncertainty, we will not be opening conference registrations at this time.

    Thanks to everyone who responded to the IPDLN 2020 Call for Abstracts and Workshop Proposals. We received a strong response and plan to continue with the review process as soon as a decision is made.

    Thanks also to all the organisers and committee members who have been working so hard to deliver the Conference and to members of the IPDLN, and wider networks, for your patience as we navigate through these uncertain times.

    We will provide further information via ipdlnconference.org and ipdln.org as soon as it becomes available.
