Armada House, Telephone Avenue, Bristol BS1 4BQ

  • Are you interested in finding new data sources in health organisations, local authorities and universities?
  • Do you have ideas about linked data projects?
  • Do you want to work with people developing and delivering health services & interventions to create new projects?

Join our workshop to explore a new resource that will help researchers and others to make best use of data to improve health and care.

Who: We are inviting researchers, clinicians, service planners, policy makers and patients & members of the public in Bristol, North Somerset and South Gloucestershire to attend a workshop about a regional project on using data to improve health, care and services through research.

Why: Bristol Health Partners and the Elizabeth Blackwell Institute, University of Bristol are creating a new resource – a Health Data Inventory. For the first time, this will provide an easy way to understand what information you might be able to use for research in our region, and where it’s held. It also collates meta-data that will help with accessing and using the data sources. Bristol is the first region to develop such a local tool and this is your chance to find out how you might use it. More background is provided below.

What: The workshop will introduce the Health Data Inventory and create space for new collaborations to develop. Pilot funding and resource will be made available by the Elizabeth Blackwell Institute for University of Bristol researchers to develop high quality linked data projects using the inventory. This workshop is your chance to create a proposal for support.

Where and when: Armada House, Telephone Avenue, Bristol  BS1 4BQ  on Tuesday 19 September, 1pm – 4.30pm
