Every day we collect, record and analyse data, and using this data, we can assure quality healthcare within our specialties.  Data is the core of physics and engineering work and determines the recommendations we make and indeed the outcomes of patients within our care.  This year the Summer School is exploring the topic of “Data-driven Healthcare” by digging deep into examining the data we collect and how we use it. 

Catering to all specialities, this school will introduce attendees to the concepts of data analysis, databases and how the information extracted can be used to shape outcomes. 

The Summer School will explore how access to larger datasets and more powerful analysis techniques have changed the way that we do work. The focus will be on risk analysis; however, the knowledge gained is applicable across all facets of our work.

Attendees will be able to discuss relevant applications of these concepts as well as gain ideas for improvement initiatives they can implement as part of their TEAP requirements.

In keeping with social distancing guidelines and COVID-19 safety checklists, the Summer School will be held completely virtually via online webinars (details will be available after registration).
