Yun (Gina) Zhong, MSc Student, Department of Statistics, UBC
Seminar
Room 4192, Earth Sciences Building (2207 Main Mall)

This talk is to share my 8-month Co-op Experience gained at Rick Hansen Institute. Introduction to the institution and Spinal Cord Injury (SCI) will be first talked about. The main focus will be Access to Care and Timing Project. The study is to describe traumatic SCI care in Canada and develop a computer simulation model that tracks the entire continuum of care in order to evaluate the timeliness and location of care and how they related to both system and patient outcomes. Different types of Generalized Linear Models are built.
