In this session, we explore one of the most compelling questions facing the neurosurgical community in 2017: how will we use "big data" to enhance our understanding of neurosurgical disease? Leading neurosurgeons will join content experts from outside the field to discuss modern data science strategies and their potential applications. Covering wide-ranging topics from genomics to healthcare delivery, this session will provide a critical foundation for any neurosurgeon looking to understand the future of outcomes research.
Upon completion of this course, attendees will be able to:
- Identify opportunities to enhance neurosurgical research through use of large datasets.
- Compare methods of statistical analyses, contrasting their strengths and weaknesses.
- Discuss the limitations of current neurosurgical databases.
