The Farr Institute London (link Map)
222 Euston Road | London | NW1 2DA | United Kingdom

Open to: Academic | Student

Primary and Secondary care records are increasingly being linked for use in research. These data, however are collected as part of routine care or for administrative purposes and a significant amount of work is required to build robust and accurate definitions of clinical concepts that can used to identify cases for further study.

Through this practical course, you will become familiar with two contemporary primary and secondary data sources (CPRD and HES), learn what types of EHR data are collected and the different ways in which data are recorded. By the end, you will understand how to combine linked EHR data sources to define disease cases.

Part of 'Harnessing Electronic Health Records for Research', a unique programme of 13 inter-related short courses in the rapidly developing field of electronic health records research.
