SAS Programmer on Clinical and Epidemiological Data
CPO Center Oncology Prevenction - S.C. Cancer Epidemiology – Turin, Piedmont
From August 2017
I work on a project "Proteus". In this project I perform and create a program using SAS Base 9.2 and I create a table containing a data about woman that accept to follow Proteus Project. In this project I perform a link from different type of clinical data as Information about Hospital Discharge and Tumoral Incidence.
On June 2017
I work on a project named "Impact 2017 - Breast Cancer ". In this project I used unique ID to perform a linkage from various type of tables containing information about personal data ; tumoral incidence ; mortality table. This data it used to Epidemiologist. In this project the fiscal code wasn't complete and so I build a program that create a fiscal code when you have information about surname ; name ; sex ; birthdate and birthtown.

Project 2015 and 2016 - Survey
with using the unique ID, I create programs using SAS and I create a tables containing different type of clinical data. The target was define how may people survey after a treatment.
Using ID from AnagraficaID found a person survive or died again a clinical treatment. The target was found men that have a colon cancer and that have been treat in hospital. Is the treatment better or not for this men ? I prepare a tables containg data about personal data, personal desease, mortality table and I link this table. I send this table to medician and epidemiologist that done the study. This type of studies has been repete for 2016
Project 2014 - AnagraficaID : was a project where I create an unique index that permit to linkage different types of table.
There was many tables containing personal data duplicate because the person, in Italy, when gone to hospital is registered with a ID. Everytime this ID is different. And so if you want to link this type of tables with the table containing for example Hospital Discharge you have many occurence. With this program you have one numeric index that permit to check the person as one. This table named AnagraficaID is increased anytime it arrive new personal data. So there is a control that prevent that there is a duplicate index. This index it was applied to many other tables. (ex : hospital discharge ; tumoral incidence ; mortality table ; etc ... )
