30 Mar 2017

Dr Kevin Wing has taken up a 3-year NIHR-funded position to study the effectiveness of drugs for Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease (COPD) within observational data. Using randomised controlled trial individual patient data from clinicalstudydatarequest.com and observational data from the Clinical Practice Research Datalink (CPRD), optimal methods for assessing COPD treatment effectiveness in CPRD will be identified and applied to the analysis of COPD patients ineligible for inclusion in trials.
