9781920899653: Clinical data mining in an allied health organisation: A real world experience

'Clinical data mining in an allied health organisation: a real world experience' shows how data-mining methodology can be used to promote quality management and research in the work of allied health professions. A collection of clinical data-mining projects, conducted by a variety of discipline-specific and multidisciplinary allied health groups in regional Australia, illustrate the application of Epstein's clinical data-mining research methodology. The chapters reflect on the ways in which this approach transforms practice by encouraging practitioner and organisational learning, client-focused service improvement and professional role satisfaction. This book is aimed at allied health, medical and nursing professionals interested in clinical practice research, quality management and those who wish to start small-scale research projects without large grants. It will be also of interest to health service managers seeking information about data-mining methodology and its use in a clinical setting.
