Location: York, UK
Venue: University of York
Date: 28-30 May 2012

This intensive workshop introduces participants to HES (hospital episode statistics) data and how to handle and manipulate these very large data sets using computer software. Understanding and interpreting this data is key for evaluating health care policy and practice. Participants will engage in problem-solving exercises, analysing the information in highly interactive sessions. This is the only course offered in the UK which teaches and applies analysis of HES data using Stata.
This workshop is suitable for analysts working in NHS hospitals, commissioning organisations and the Department of Health, and for health care researchers and PhD students. Overseas applicants may also find the tuition can be applied to similar scenarios in their own country.
The workshop fee is 800GBP, which includes all tuition, course materials, lunches, the welcome and drinks reception, the workshop dinner and refreshments, but does not include accommodation. Subsidised places are available for full-time PhD students.
