Perform your research

Our research department conducts both qualitative and quantitative research. For general information about conducting your research, data collection, datamanagement and data analysis consult the Quality Handbook APH.

The Research management of our department can offer advise and support with data collection and datamanagement to researchers from GGZ inGeest and Amsterdam UMC/VUmc psychiatry.

Datamanagement plays an increasingly important role in doing scientific research involving human subjects (both ‘WMO’ and ‘not WMO’). From subsidizing agencies, scientific journals, laws and regulations (including privacy) and from the point of view of scientific integrity, increasingly high demands are placed on the responsible handling of research data during all phases of the research process. FAIR data (Findable, Accessible, Interoperable, Re-usable) is the keyword. 

In case of an audit or inspection it is obliged to have all essential research documents filed. The science committee of GGZ inGeest (CWO) can help you to set up a Trial Master File / Investigator Site File (TMF/ISF). Read more about this on archiving your data.

Data analyses

EpidM (VU/VUmc) organizes courses in epidemiological and advanced statistical methods and a Master’s Program in Epidemiology. The courses can provide important support in the design and analysis of your research. For more information see www.epidm.nl. APH members receive a discount for these courses.

The specialists for data analysis at our department are Adriaan Hoogendoorn (statistician), Stasja Draisma (methodologist) and Tim Zandbelt (data integration).

Amsterdam Public Health has a Methodology program with lots of expertise on data analyses and methodology.
