2018 Institute on Health Services Research

Quality Strategies in Rehabilitation: Advancing Health Services Research

Co-sponsored by CoHSTAR & the Center for Large Data Research & Data Sharing in Rehabilitation (CLDR)

“Building scientific capacity to advance the practice of rehabilitation science will only be achieved with extensive collaboration between institutions and across research disciplines.” – Ken Ottenbacher, PhD, OTR, CLDR Program Director

“I am particularly excited that this year’s HSR Institute will bring together colleagues from across the rehabilitation disciplines to focus on research strategies to evaluate and improve quality of care. This will be a unique opportunity for attendees to learn about quality initiatives from nationally known thought leaders, deepen their understanding of health services research methods, and develop collegial relationships both within and across disciplinary boundaries.” – Linda Resnik, PT, PhD, FAPTA, CoHSTAR Director 

Wednesday, April 4, 2018 (evening only)
Thursday, April 5, 2018 (full day)
Boston University

Don’t miss this groundbreaking collaboration! CoHSTAR is pleased to announce that for our third health services research institute, we will be partnering with the CLDR. The Institute will focus on advancing health services research and quality strategies. Quality goals and outcomes have important implications for health services research in rehabilitation.

Join us in Boston next spring for this exciting partnership between CoHSTAR and the CLDR!

A joint Cornell University and ADDEP Webinar

Date and Time:  Monday, November 13th from 1-2pm EDT

Secondary datasets are valuable resources for testing hypotheses and generating meaningful statistics about issues related to disability and rehabilitation.

This presentation will introduce two web-based resources designed to help researchers learn about:

- Datasets related to disability and rehabilitation
- Topics covered by different datasets
- How to access the datasets
- Tools to explore and analyze the data
- Additional dataset resources and how you can share your own data

The Rehabilitation Dataset Directory is a browse-able/searchable database providing an overview, description, sample and other pertinent information for over 50 datasets. ADDEP is a data repository that acquires, preserves, and disseminates research data on disability and rehabilitation providing researchers an interactive space to explore and analyze secondary data.

The Rehabilitation Dataset Directory was developed by the Yang-Tan Institute on Employment and Disability (YTI) at Cornell University. The disability data repository, ADDEP, is hosted by ICPSR, the largest social science data archive in the world and part of the University of Michigan's Institute for Social Research. Both resources are supported through a sub-contract to the University of Texas Medical Branch (UTMB) Center for Large Data Research and Data Sharing in Rehabilitation (CLDR) funded by The National Institutes of Health - National Center for Medical Rehabilitation Research (P2CHD06570

Workshop: Instrumental Variables Analysis - July 13-14, 2017

Research investigators attend a presented by Felix Elwert, PhDThe Division of Rehabilitation Sciences, the Center for Large Data Research and Data Sharing in Rehabilitation (CLDR), and the Office of Biostatistics in the Department of Preventive Medicine & Community Health at UTMB co-hosted a two-day workshop on July 13-14, for research investigators on Instrumental Variables Analysis (IV).

IV analysis is an important quasi-experimental technique with numerous applications in economics, the social and biomedical sciences, business, marketing, and education. Felix Elwert, PhD guides students through a 2-day seminar that takes students from the basic Wald estimator up to powerful recent developments, including non-parametric test of the exclusion assumption.

Cornell Webinar: Tools for Finding Disability and Rehabilitation Related Data, May 5, 2017

Presenters: William Erickson and Sarah Von Schrader, K. Lisa Yang and Hock E. Tan Institute on Employment and Disability, Cornell University

Tools for Finding Disability and Rehabilitation Related Data

Date and Time:  Tuesday, May 5th, 2017 2:00-3:00pm EDT

Research tools for exploring national-survey and administrative data

Secondary datasets such as national surveys and administrative data are valuable resources for testing hypotheses and generating national-level statistics about disability and rehabilitation related-issues. Unfortunately, it can be difficult to identify what datasets are available and what data are most appropriate for addressing a specific research interest.

This presentation will introduce two innovative web-based resources designed to help researchers learn:

- What datasets related to disability and rehabilitation are out there?
- What topics are covered in each dataset?
- What are the dataset strengths and limitations?
- How do I access the datasets?
- How to link to the University of Michigan’s Archive of Data on Disability to Enable Policy and Research (ADDEP)

The Rehabilitation Dataset Directory  is a browse-able/searchable database providing an overview, description, sample and other pertinent information for nearly 60 datasets. The Rehabilitation Research Cross-dataset Variable Catalog allows the exploration of variables organized by topics (including disability and health conditions, healthcare, health behaviors and more) simultaneously across 6 major datasets.

The tools were developed by the Yang-Tan Institute on Employment and Disability (YTI) at Cornell University in collaboration with the University of Texas Medical Branch (UTMB). This work was funded by a sub-contract to YTI through funding from The National Institutes of Health - National Center for Medical Rehabilitation Research (No. R24 HD065702) a grant funded to the UTMB’s Center for Rehabilitation Research using Large Datasets.
