How-To HINTS: A Practical Workshop

On May 4, 2016, presenters from the National Cancer Institute and the U.S. Food and Drug Administration came together to provide an overview of HINTS, review optimal ways for analyzing HINTS data, and present case studies that used HINTS data in an interactive workshop and webinar. Videos from this webinar are found below.

Dr. Brad Hesse of the National Cancer Institute (NCI) presents an introduction to the Health Information National Trends Survey (HINTS) during the May 4th event “How-To HINTS: A Practical Workshop.” This presentation reviews the history and goals of the HINTS program, discusses the HINTS sampling methodology, and the strengths and limitations of HINTS data.

Dr. Alexandra Greenberg of the Mayo Clinic (at the time of the presentation a part of the National Cancer Institute) discusses how to merge HINTS data over multiple cycles, using an example from a study using Healthy People 2020 benchmarks, during the May 4th event “How-To HINTS: A Practical Workshop.”

Dr. Richard Moser of the National Cancer Institute (NCI) presents a variety of analytic techniques for Health Information National Trends Survey (HINTS) data during the May 4th event “How-To HINTS: A Practical Workshop.” This presentation reviews importing and formatting HINTS data, using SUDAAN and SAS-callable SUDAAN for HINTS analyses, analytic recommendations for the latest HINTS dataset, and how to merge HINTS data across cycles.

Dr. Elisabeth Donaldson of the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) discusses an example STATA analysis using HINTS-FDA data during the May 4th event “How-To HINTS: A Practical Workshop.”

Dr. Alexandra Greenberg of the Mayo Clinic (at the time of the presentation a part of the National Cancer Institute) discusses how to merge HINTS data over multiple cycles, using an example from a study using Healthy People 2020 benchmarks, during the May 4th event “How-To HINTS: A Practical Workshop.”
