Location Blackett Lecture Theatre, Schuster Building, Brunswick Street, University of Manchester

A joint meeting between the Royal Statistical Society (RSS) Medical and Statistics & the Law Sections.
  
A lot of research into causes of deaths for different population and patient groups use data that were not collected for such a purpose. There are particular caveats to how causes are coded within hospital and death certificate registration data that need to be acknowledged, in order to correctly interpret such analyses. The RSS Medical and Stats & the Law Sections have organised an afternoon of talks on these caveats and challenges. Confirmed speakers and talks are:
 
Mr. Michael Singleton (Senior Coroner for Blackburn, Hyndburn & Ribble Valley and lead coroner for the UK Disaster Victim Identification Cadre of Advisory Coroners):
“A coroner’s perspective on the conclusion of suicide.”

Dr. Peter Sidebotham (Associate Clinical Professor and Reader in Child Health):
“One to two children per week? Challenges in interpreting data on deaths from child abuse and neglect”

Prof. Tim Millar (Senior Research Fellow, National Drug Evidence Centre):
Title of talk to follow.

Dr Ben Windsor-Shellard (Mortality Analysis group, Office for National Statistics)*:
“Death certification and mortality statistics”  

*Note that Ben will be speaking in place of Claudia Wells.
