Project Description

Western Australia is one of only five locations worldwide with a comprehensive linked data system, which is well recognised as a powerful source for population-based research on health outcomes for clinically defined populations. It has already been used by Horner and Calver to examine issues of ageing (infection, high cost hospital use, service use before death) that have been published in peer-reviewed journals (Australian Infection Control, Medical Journal of Australia, Australian & New Zealand Journal of Public Health).
