Health Informatics Research: Utilising electronic health & care data for health research
With over 10 years experience of using a wide range of health and care datasets for health research, Prof Corri Black is a member of Farr Institue @ Scotland and ADRC Scotland.
Her research interests focus on understanding complexity in health and care across the life course and fall into three core programmes:
Kidney Disease: epidemiology and service delivery
Prof Corri Black, with Dr A Marks and Dr S Sawhney, leads a programme of research focusing on developing risk prediction models to tailor and target the care of people with Kidney Disease.
Using routine healthcare data to understand the epidemiology and impact of multimorbidity. This work includes measurement of multimorbidity, polypharmacy and medication adherence, multimorbidity burden and impact on health outcomes.
As part of the work programmes for Farr Institute @ Aberdeen and ADRC Scotland, Dr Black is involved in expoloring the early life influences on physical, cognitive and social resilience.
