VIReC hosts several cyberseminar series to provide expert discussion and guidance on key issues related to using VA data for research.

Database & Methods

Faculty from VIReC and guest lecturers present these informational seminars to help VA researchers access and use VA databases for research. The objectives of this series are to:

  • Demonstrate applications of VA data in research studies
  • Suggest “best practices” in using VA databases
  • Define approaches for using VA data to evaluate outcomes
  • Explore the limitations of secondary data for investigating specific concepts and outcomes

Seminars are typically held on the first Monday of the month from 1:00–2:00 PM (ET).


Clinical Informatics

In this currently archived series, presenters elaborate on applications of clinical informatics in research and quality improvement projects and explain how to evaluate clinical informatics and IT interventions.
