Topic: Health across the lifespan: from methods to public policy
Presented by: Centre for Longitudinal and Life Course Research, School of Population Health
In this talk we provide a general overview of key research within the Centre. We particularly focus on the Australian Longitudinal Study on Women's Health (ALSWH), one of the longest running studies of women's health of its kind in Australia and discuss how the ALSWH and other Centre projects are using record linkage to health services administrative databases (such as those held by Medicare, Cancer Registries etc.) to inform research on health care utilisation, provide validity of self-reported measures, and to support cross-cohort comparisons.
Methodological development, which is at the heart of all the Centre’s projects, will also be discussed with a focus on statistical issues such as non-ignorable missing data, bi-directionality, and causal inference.
