Linked data to quantify rheumatic fever and rheumatic heart disease in Australia: challenges and methods

Also available to view live via the internet. See details below.

Overview

The Australian RHD Burden Study aims to characterise the epidemiology of rheumatic fever and rheumatic heart disease across five States and Territories using linked administrative data from diverse sources. This presentation outlines the challenges of - and methods developed to address - fragmented and inconsistent data coupled by systematic problems in the ICD coding structure.

Judith Katzenellenbogen is a cardiovascular epidemiologist at the University of Western Australia, with broad experience in South Africa, NZ and Australia. Her current work focuses on Indigenous CVD and research translation. She leads the Australian linked data project on ARF/RHD burden and contributes to a range of CVD projects across Australia.
