New Discoveries with 'Old' Data: Secondary Analysis in Rehabilitation Research
February 22, 2019
2:00 - 3:30pm
Speakers: Sarah Welch, DO, Amol Karmarkar, MPH, PhD and Kenneth Ottenbacher, PhD, OTR
The workshop will be led by researchers from the Center for Large Data Research and Data Sharing in Rehabilitation (CLDR) at the University of Texas Medical Branch and Vanderbilt University Medical Center. We will provide information on the value of secondary data analysis in advancing scholarship and practice in rehabilitation medicine; how to find and select secondary data related to a topic of interest; and the fundamentals of managing and analyzing archived data. This information will help investigators increase both the scope and impact of their research. The CLDR will provide an overview of resources available through the Center, including the Rehabilitation Data Directory (RDD) and The Archive of Data on Disability to Enable Policy and research (ADDEP).
The RDD is designed to assist physical medicine and rehabilitation researchers to identify potential secondary data sources. ADDEP is a data repository developed by the CLDR exclusively for completed disability- and rehabilitation-related research projects. Following the brief overview, we will host a demonstration that will guide attendees through the process of finding, accessing, and analyzing archived data.
