Training for NHS & Local Authority Analysts

This 90 minute training course has been developed for NHS and local authority analysts to enable them to evaluate the impact of public health, health and social care interventions using linked population level data. The aim is to develop the skills of analysts to carry out analyses where people receiving an intervention can be matched with similar groups not receiving the intervention (control groups) to estimate the likely impact on outcomes that can be measured in these data, sometimes called quasi-experimental methods.

Training will be delivered by health data science experts of the University of Liverpool’s Civic Health Innovation Lab (CHIL), you’ll gain:

  • Practical Applications: Learn how to leverage existing data for robust public health, health and social care program evaluation, with examples of how these methods have previously been used.
  • Theoretical Framework: Understand the principles behind making causal inferences from analysis of interventions using routine data, addressing biases related to selection into interventions and confounding.
  • R Programming Skills: Get a practical tutorial using R to implement an evaluation using the RICE approach and interpret your findings.

The session is aimed at analysts who plan to use the methods in their work. We will use this as an opportunity to gauge learning needs and develop further sessions to reflect those. Potentially this could lead into a community of practice supporting analysts in implementing RICE within their work.
