Location: Dinwoodie Lecture Theatre 1&2, Cicely Saunders Institute, Denmark Hill Campus
Registry-based research and randomized controlled trials (R-RCTs) in Sweden
Speaker: Magnus Ekstrom, Lund University, Sweden
About the speaker: Magnus Ekström completed his PhD in 2012 which involved cross-linking and analysis of Swedish national registry data in patients with chronic respiratory failure. He is currently a postdoctoral research fellow at Flinders University, Adelaide, South Australia (prof. David Currow). His research focuses on the measurement, epidemiology, and treatment of breathlessness, and on the management in advanced respiratory disease and chronic respiratory failure.
Abstract: This seminar will be about how to make the most with routinely collected health care data. This includes an overview of past and present projects cross-linking national databases, and of the structure and use of Swedish health care and quality registers for research. Advantages, limitations and potential challenges will be discussed as well as how to take forward high quality evidence in routine care by registry-based randomized controlled trials (R-RCTs).
