The Department of Population Health Sciences is leading on research that will help improve services in two speciality areas:
Theme lead: Professor Charles Wolfe
The Stroke theme is aiming to develop, test and implement novel system-wide approaches to identifying, targeting and managing people with stroke who have multiple morbidities. Members of the research team want to integrate data held by GPs, hospitals and other organisations that have contributed to a stroke survivor's care, or collected information about a stroke survivor within a 'virtual patient record'. This would be accessible on GPs' screens via their existing electronic systems.
