HSLIC's Biomedical Informatics Seminar Series Presents: Kristopher Jackson, PhD, MSN, AGACNPBC

by David Lucero on 2022-11-03T11:29:38-06:00 | Comments

You are invited to join us on Thursday, November 10th, from 10 to 11 AM for a virtual seminar by Kristopher Jackson, PhD, MSN, AGACNP-BC.

Topic: Web Scraping: Implications for Contemporary Health-Sciences Research

Description: During his riveting talk, Dr. Jackson will provide a brief overview of web scraping as a data collection method and provide an example of how this practice could be implemented in a health research context. While much of the data we generate through our interactions with the Internet have well established e-commerce applications, Internet data may also provide useful data in academic research. To date, researchers from the health sciences have yet to fully embrace this practice..


Learning Objectives:

1. Identify various tools used by researchers when designing and executing projects using web-scraping as a data collection technique
2. Name several principles of “ethical web-scraping”
3. List at least one hidden or stigmatized community that may not be reachable using conventional survey research methods, but could be accessible via web-scraping
