Round Table: Expanding your toolkit: How can you use data science to streamline your research and tackle bigger questions?
November 2, 2018

Advancing the field of neurorehabilitation requires researchers to collectively gather, store, manage, and analyze vast amounts of data. These data take many forms including medical imaging, clinical assessments, electronic health records, or even wearable devices. In this roundtable, we want to discuss how to modernize your data “ecosystem” in-line with the NIH’s “Strategic Plan for Data Science” (including advanced data storage, management, and analysis methods).

Accessing and utilizing archived research data: The Boston RISE Study

November 14, 2018

This workshop will highlight secondary data resources available for rehabilitation research. It will be led by researchers and archivists from the CLDR at the University of Texas Medical Branch and the ICPSR at the University of Michigan. Following a brief overview, experienced investigators from Harvard Medical School will guide participants through the process of accessing and analyzing archived data from the Boston RISE study, a community-based prospective cohort study on mobility and disability in older adults.

New Dataset Available Spinal Cord Injury Rehabilitation Study
Data Available for Secondary Analysis
Spinal Cord Injury Rehabilitation Study, United States, 2007-2010 (ICPSR 36724)

The Spinal Cord Injury (SCI) Rehabilitation study was a multi-site, prospective observational study utilizing Practice Based Evidence methods to relate details of the rehabilitation process to patient outcomes using data collected from 1,376 people with spinal cord injuries from six collaborating institutions.

With a dataset as large and comprehensive as the SCIRehab study, additional research questions can still be answered by providing public access to the datasets for secondary data analysis. Visit ICPSR’s SCIRehab page to learn more.
