Funding secured to investigate the effect of partner bereavement on skin diseases

03 Jan 2017

The European Academy of Dermatology and Venerology are funding a programme of work to investigate the effects of partner bereavement on a range of skin diseases. The project is being led by Dr Sinéad Langan and is a collaboration between the LSHTM EHR Research Group, Aarhus University in Denmark and the Clinical Practice Research Datalink. A number of EHR researchers from LSHTM are involved in the project, including Liam Smeeth, Kathryn Mansfield, Sara Thomas and Harriet Forbes.

Data sources will include the UK Clinical Practice Research Datalink and Danish registry data. The work is currently underway and we are looking forward to collaborating with our Danish colleagues on this exciting new research project.
