New short course in Predictive Modelling Announced

13 January 2010

A short course in Predictive Modelling for Health and Social Services has been announced for Wednesday 20 January.

The objective of this course is to provide an overview of predictive modelling technologies. Predictive modelling, which usually refers to the identification of patients at high risk of an event (e.g. emergency readmission, heart failure, risk of death, long term care placement) has been a major concern for many healthcare providers (hospitals, clinicians) or purchasers (primary care trusts, local authorities). A number of predictive tools have been developed, such as the PARR case finding tool however, these are often complex to set up, expensive, and may not be applicable to all domains.
