Workshop: Unmet needs and challenges in using clinical narrative

November 15, 2016 @ 9:30 am - 2:30 pm

Unmet needs and challenges in using narrative data for clinical/epidemiological research


This workshop will provide an opportunity to consider text fields across clinical specialties and platforms, focusing on the potential opportunities to open up new data for analysis and to support novel healthcare e-interventions. Particular priority will be given to the views of clinical researchers who are most familiar with the ways in which information is recorded in their services. There are likely to be important applications which may not always generalise between specialties and which may not have been adequately considered to date because of the tendency for health records research to focus on the data which are most readily available/accessible.


The workshop will follow the Healtex launch event and is part of the activities organised by the network to identify unmet needs and research challenges at an early stage in order to direct its development work most effectively.

Please note that this event is now fully booked.
