DHEZ Seminar Series 2022: Getting to Grips with Health Data

This event is part of the DHEZ Seminar Series 2022 https://www.bradford.ac.uk/dhez/events/seminar-series-2022/




The Digital Health Enterprise Zone (DHEZ) Seminar Series showcases innovations in digital health and provides a forum for academics, healthcare professionals and business to network and learn about public engagement in healthcare and pathways to implementation of digital health solutions and new models of care.

Tom Lawton is a consultant in Critical Care and Anesthetics at Bradford Teaching Hospitals NHS Trust, and is Head of Clinical Analytics for the Improvement Academy. Tom will talk about simulation modelling. Simulation modelling is a powerful tool which is under-used in UK healthcare. Reasons for this include a lack of easily-available expertise to design models, and a heterogeneity of patients which leads to an “explosion of categories” when attempting to use traditional methods. However, the use of routinely-collected healthcare data can drive models in a “bootstrapping” approach which we have used successfully in multiple healthcare settings both pre- and mid-pandemic, and are now using to plan for the future of healthcare in Yorkshire.

X√®nia P√©rez Sitj√†, ELIXIR_UK Data Stewardship Community Manager and Dr Krzysztof Poterlowicz, academic lead on the FAIR Data Stewardship Training Project from the University of Bradford will be talking about the work of the ELIXIR-UK Data Stewardship Fellowship Programme. The University of Bradford led project, funded as part of the UKRI Innovation Scholars for data science training in health and biosciences, has a delivery team at Cardiff University, the Earlham Institute, the University of Manchester and the University of Oxford. The programme focuses on building capacity and professionalising Data Stewardship, while leveraging the local expertise of diverse UK universities and research institutes ‚Äď changing the data management culture from within the institutions. The project is recruiting a total of 20 Data Steward Fellows, who will act as research data management ambassadors. A first cohort of nine Fellows has already been meticulously selected from a diverse range of universities and institutes across the UK. They have started working on short training videos called RDMbites, and online and on-site courses.

The event is finished.
