Centre for Digital Scholarship - Appication of visual analytics to healthcare associated infection

The Centre for Digital Scholarship invites you to join us for a major series on Visual Analytics, led by Margaret Varga, chair of the NATO Exploratory Visual Analytics Research Task Group and visiting fellow at the University of Oxford’s Department of Oncology. Each talk will stand alone, and attending more of them will build to give an overview of this increasingly vital and profoundly interdisciplinary work from a world expert in the field.

We continue the series with:

30 June: Application of visual analytics to healthcare associated infection

Healthcare associated infections (HAI) are of important concern in patient care. This seminar will describe Visual Analytics techniques which have been developed to help detect, monitor, analyse and understand trends, clusters and outbreaks of HAI.
