Attention researchers!

Full-day seminars on health services research methods will be held November 4-6, 2002 in Washington, DC. The seminars will focus on using Federal and State databases and will include in-depth courses on two AHRQ databases: the Healthcare Cost and Utilization Project (HCUP) and the Medical Expenditure Panel Survey (MEPS). In addition, researchers will have an opportunity to learn about the National Center for Health Statistics' National Health Interview Survey and National Health Care Survey, VA databases in health services research, and the National Library of Medicine's products and services. The opening day includes workshops on data privacy, the use of non-health databases to supplement health databases, and the NCHS Trends in Health and Aging database warehouse.
