Data Standards and Terminologies Masterclass

The Yorkshire Centre for Health Informatics (YCHI) has recently won a grant proposal from the UK Faculty of Health Informatics to explore how data standards and terminologies are being used in education. We will be running a one-day masterclass event on Thursday, 11th March 2010, where we hope to attract participants from academe, industry and the NHS to discuss their experiences of data standards and products. Lunch will be provided but you will have to cover your own travel expenses to/from the venue.


To discuss and create a dissemination strategy for products from the Department of Health Informatics Directorate’s Data Standards and Products team in education.


  • To learn about the products offered by the Data Standards and Products team.
  • To share examples of educational tools already used to deliver data standards and terminologies training.
  • To explore the need for data standards and terminology training.
  • To identify next steps in creating and disseminating such resources.


Keynote presentation followed by interactive whiteboarding and discussion points of who needs to be involved, what levels of detail are required and how to disseminate. Techniques will include stakeholder analysis, critical success factors and product matrices. The masterclass will end with an hour-long WebEx panel open to all via the Web to discuss findings and answer questions. Dial-in numbers will be provided closer to the time for those who register.


A proposed outline strategy for development and dissemination. A white paper will also be sent to all delegates after the event.

The masterclass will be hosted by YCHI within the Leeds Institute of Health Sciences. The address is:
