Group 1 : Semi-autonomous analysis of qualitative PREMs data

Positive patient experience has been associated with improved patient safety and clinical effectiveness across many different healthcare settings. Patient’s CRIvieCOwsS Provonidert Nheiumrber:heal 00025thcB are experiences can be captured through both quantitative and qualitative questions, known collectively as Patient Reported Experience Measures or PREMs. These tools are increasingly being used to drive changes in healthcare, however a major barrier to their effective use is a lack and resources to analyse and interpret the responses, especially for qualitative free-text feedback. We are working with the Royal Brisbane and Women’s Hospital to investigate whether a text analytic tool, Leximancer, can be used to semi-autonomously analyse PREMs free-text data to identify opportunities to improve patient experience.

Group 2: Cocaine delivery to your home. Faster than getting pizza!

The Global Substance Use and Mental Health (GSUMH) unit at CHSR is involved in a broad range of research topics, including tobacco cessation, epidemiology of global drug use, advocacy for drug checking services, improving the efficacy of random breath testing to reduce alcohol-related traffic crashes, modelling the effectiveness of ID scanners at nightclub venues to reduce alcohol-related violence, and understanding the harms from nitrous oxide use (to name a few). We will provide an informative, yet rapid snapshot, of all things happening at GSUMH.
