The Learning Health System & Research with Patients

This short, intensive course will take place in University College Dublin, Ireland from the 14th until the 16th of December 2015.  It will focus on two key areas that are crucial to good connected health research – one looking at routine translation of data into knowledge (The Learning Health System) and another looking at methodological perspectives (working with patient populations).

The course is organised by the ENJECT Cost Action and is hosted by the Insight Centre for Data Analytics and the Applied Research for Connected Health Technology Centre at University College Dublin, Ireland.
