The CLEAR Outcomes Program is seeking a graduate student interested in conducting thesis research on medical/diagnostic language using the Older Persons' Transitions in Care data set. The OPTIC data set provides an ideal opportunity to examine medical language, as it contains initial records of:
- symptoms recording by long term care centres,
- emergency medical services chief complaints,
- and final emergency department diagnoses for over 600 long term care to emergency department transitions.
