|Introduction to Data Linkage for Research||
A one-day course run by the Melbourne School of Population and Global Health at The University of Melbourne that will discuss the application of linked administrative data to real world problems and outline how data linkage can be used to provide valuable, policy-relevant evidence. This course will consist of lectures and group discussions.
No knowledge of data linkage is required; however, basic familiarity with research methods is an asset.
Monday 27th August 2018. Graduate House, 220 Leicester Street, Carlton.
This 3+1 days short course led by Prof Tony Blakely (Centre for Epidemiology and Biostatistics) and Prof John Lynch (The University of Adelaide) will provide a systematic overview of epidemiological concepts and methods, building up from sources of error (confounding, information bias, selection bias) to bias analysis methods, then a range of contemporary methods. The course is premised on a counterfactual and potential outcomes approach to epidemiology. This course is designed for participants with an intermediate-level of knowledge of epidemiology study design and analytical methods, systematic error and biostatistics.
Common attendees of this course include advanced MPH and PhD students, early career researchers, and senior investigators who want an efficient “catch up” on some of the new thinking and methods being used in higher quality research publications.
Monday to Thursday 24-27 September, Graduate House, 220 Leicester Street, Carlton.
|Introduction to Cost-Effectiveness Analysis in Health||

|Evaluating public health interventions using economic and epidemiologic methods||
This one-day short course provides an overview of how cost-effectiveness and cost-benefit analyses can be used to evaluate public sector inventions, including screening and prevention programs, and ways to improve access to health care.
Tuesday 30 October, University House, Corner of Tin Alley and Professors Walk, Parkville.
|Practical Methods for Health Economic Evaluation||
A three-day intensive computer based course in methods for health economic evaluation. The course covers study design principles, techniques for analysing costs and outcomes and an introduction to decision models. Each module is re-enforced by exercises in Excel, TreeAge Pro and STATA. Participants should be familiar with basic statistics and Microsoft Excel. It is designed for those engaged in undertaking cost-effectiveness analysis and resource allocation decision-making.
Wednesday 31 October - Friday 2 November, Graduate House, 220 Leicester Street, Carlton.
