Aarhus-Danish Stanford Research Partnership

Registry Presentation: When the Entire Country is a Cohort | Mental Health Outcomes Workshop | Big Data Workshop

Please join us on Tuesday, January 23rd for our Aarhus-Stanford Research Partnership event at Stanford University, featuring Dr. Henrik Sorensen and the Department of Clinical Epidemiology at Aarhus University, Denmark.  The quality and comprehensiveness of the Danish registry system provides an unparalleled resource for population health studies that enables researchers to reconstruct individual life and health trajectories for an entire population.  For example, the Danish National Patient Registry is linkable at the patient level with data from the national biobank, clinical registries, randomized controlled trials, population surveys, employment registries, and epidemiologic field studies.

Beginning with the talk, “When the Entire Country is a Cohort”, followed by two topic-focused workshops, participants will learn about the Danish registry system, ongoing work that involves Stanford and Aarhus researchers and opportunities to engage in new research collaborations through the Stanford Center for Population Health Sciences.
