UBDC is pleased to host a seminar by Dr Alasdair Rutherford, University of Stirling, on Pathways to Care: Using administrative and survey data to understand care in older age.
Scotland is at the forefront of using linked administrative and social survey data to understand health and social care usage. In this talk I will discuss two current projects making use of the emerging potential for greater use of administrative data on service-use. "Pathways through Care" uses hospital records and prescription data linked to social care records for older people to understand the interaction of different care services, and how these might differ for different cohorts of older people. Healthy AGing In Scotland (HAGIS) is a pilot longitudinal study of ageing for Scotland currently in development that plans to make innovative use of linked administrative and survey data to better understand survey non-response and attrition, while providing a longitudinal sample of older people in Scotland to address a range of substantive research questions.
