SAIL Databank Showcase Webinar Series
The theme of this webinar is The use of SAIL for NHS by the NHS for evaluation and service improvement.
The SAIL Databank Showcase Webinar Series is a great opportunity to hear from guest speakers about the research they're undertaking and to get all the latest information and ask questions across the SAIL Databank team and group leads, including infrastructure, analytical services, data resources and documentation, public engagement, business and other developments and updates.
The SAIL Databank Showcase Webinar Series is held bi-monthly, and each webinar focuses on a different research and intelligence theme. If you would like the opportunity to present or would like to make a request/suggestion for future themes, please contact: Ashley Akbari ([email protected]) or Chris Orton ([email protected]).

Consent as a source of bias. Responses from consenting pupils who completed the biennial Student Health and Wellbeing Survey conducted by the School Health Research Network (SHRN) are now in SAIL. The survey includes questions about ‘risky’ behaviours (smoking, drinking, drugs, truanting, exclusion, bullying/being bullied, sexting & sexual health). By linking responses to routinely collected social services, education & health data the project aims to uncover patterns of participation in these behaviours amongst those receiving care & support from social services relative to their peers, & the potential protective factors. Linking to social services & family court data provides an opportunity to undertake a more nuanced & intersectional approach rather than treating children looked after as a homogenous group. However, it is first necessary to determine the extent to which the cohort is represented within the response data in SAIL. This session will present preliminary findings.
