Data: a Clinical Perspective
From Isabelle Hanlon
This talk will consider what clinicians think about data and what they should think about data. I’ll talk about how and where data are collected, used and how we can make it even better. Whilst clinicians use and report data in day-to-day clinical practice, entry tools and reporting are often inefficient, and whilst clinicians are skilled at observation and medical decision making, they often struggle with accurately recording and measuring activities. This in turn leads to data variation and issues in data quality.
