Nynke brings Epidemiology to the party…
We are very pleased that Dr Nynke Halbesma is joining RRG whilst on secondment from the Usher Institute at the University of Edinburgh. Nynke is an expert in renal epidemiology, and is helping the Health Analytical Services Division at the Scottish Government to prepare and analyse linked data pertaining to OHCA in Scotland. Using datasets from the whole patient journey we plan to drill down into the geographic, social, biological and clinical factors affecting the function of the chain of survival. Visualising this data will help drive improvement and track change as we implement the Scottish Strategy for OHCA.
