Register for AHRQ's April 26 HCUP hands-on training workshop
Research Activities, April 2010, No. 356
The Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality (AHRQ) will sponsor a full-day, intermediate level, hands-on workshop for health services researchers interested in learning more about Healthcare Cost and Utilization Project (HCUP) data resources. Participants will gain exposure to HCUP databases and related tools (including HCUPnet) through hands-on manipulation of the data, including file construction, production of national estimates, creation of State-level output, and application of critical methods to produce correct standard deviations. Access to the HCUP Nationwide Inpatient Sample (NIS) and State Inpatient Databases (SID) will be provided during the workshop.
The course will be held at the AHRQ headquarters in Rockville, Maryland. Registration is open until April 15 or until the class size reaches 35. Thereafter, registrants will be waitlisted.
Registration and additional information are available at http://www.hcup-us.ahrq.gov/news/newsletters/newsltrQ1_2010.htm#Calendar. For more information, contact HCUP User Support at firstname.lastname@example.org.
