Fundamentals of Health Services Research @ Billings Hospital Room H-300
Jul 10 @ 1:00 pm – 2:30 pm
Fundamentals of Health Services Research @ Billings Hospital Room H-300

This course is designed to provide an introduction to the fundamentals of health services research. The basic concepts of health services research will be taught with emphasis on both their social scientific foundations and the methods needed for their practical application to empirically relevant research. Theoretical foundations will draw on principles from economics, sociology, psychology, and the other social sciences. Methodological topics to be covered will include techniques for data collection and analysis, including outcomes measurement, survey methods, large data set research, population-based study design, community based participatory research, research based in clinical settings, qualitative methods, cost-effectiveness analysis, and tools of economic and sociological analysis. The theoretical and empirical techniques taught will emphasize those relevant to the examination of health care costs, quality, and access. Major applications will include: measurement and improvement of health care quality, analysis of health disparities, analysis of health care technology, and analysis of health care systems and markets. Students prepare a grant proposal as the final assignment for this course. Instructors include David Meltzer, MD, PhD, an ITM investigator.

The ITM and our partner CHeSS offer this course as a part of the Summer Program in Outcomes Research Training (SPORT).
