By the end of 2018 SIMSAM has been active for 10 years. This will be acknowledged by a free open national one-day symposium in Stockholm 16 May reflecting on how the achievements and experiences of SIMSAM and other parties engaged in register-based research can help develop register-based research in Sweden in the future.
In addition to SIMSAM presentations, challenges and possibilities related to register-based research will be highlighted by members of the scientific advisory board of SIMSAM and by representatives of the National Board of Health and Welfare, Statistics Sweden and the Swedish National Data Service. Researchers who want to present and receive input on their studies can participate in the poster sessions which will be held during breaks and after the last session.
Anyone with an interest in register-based research is warmly invited to attend this inspiring event, which will take place Wednesday 16 May (9.00-17.20) at Karolinska University Hospital in Solna (Eugeniahemmet). The symposium is jointly arranged by the SIMSAM nodes SUNDEM at Stockholm University and SIMSAM UGIR at Karolinska Institutet.
