Inhalt • A lecture-seminar-workshop format will be used, with 1-2 hrs of lectures, 2 hrs seminars and 1 hrs workshop.
• The complete process from importing, preparing, analyzing, reporting and presenting the data will be covered.
• Regression-based techniques will be introduced, applied and discussed
• Examples will be introduced that showcase the unique design features to be considered in the planning and stages of a study so that specific methods can be employed during the analysis.
Lernziele Using large, routine data (LRD) for health services research is part of the module on "Advanced Research Methods" which also introduces students to advanced research methods including the development and evaluation of complex healthcare interventions and health economics. The general objectives of the LRD course is to enhance the in-depth understanding of the planning and implementation of the analysis of large routine data in the context of health services research. Today’s healthcare systems provide a wide range of data sources like large discharge datasets, epidemiological registries or data from the electronic health record, which offer many opportunities for health and nursing research. The aim of this 3KP course is to provide an introduction in the analysis of large data sets for research purposes and to give students first hand experience in the analyses of such data sets. The course will provide students the basis to plan and conduct LRD analyses in the context of their own area of research.
With the successful completion of the course students will be able to:
1. Understand the basic steps in the analytical process of LRD sets
2. Develop and assess answerable research questions in the context of LRD
3. Evaluate scope and limitations of popular analytical techniques in the context of LRD
4. Understand and apply principles of reproducible research
5. Plan, conduct and present a contained LRD project
