This webinar series provides researchers, undergraduate and post-graduate students, policymakers, professionals, and health care experts with the tools and resources to think creatively and critically about the process of data analysis. Taught through the lens of population health, this series introduces participants to various topics such as data quality analysis, application of data quality frameworks, and data visualization software.
During the series, we will discuss how, when, and in what context data analytics frameworks are useful in approaching, understanding, and visualizing health data. To actively engage in the content presented, you will be provided with a framework to critically understand data quality and analyze a sample CIHI data set.
