Summary: When we study long term health conditions, we often find that people do not come to all appointments, or answer all the questions they are asked. I have worked with colleagues on statistical methods which allow us to understand whether the conclusions we make about effective treatments are reliable despite the missing information. These methods have been used to understand more about what affects the life time of people with cerebral palsy, and what the common causes of death are. This affects settlements in cases about medical failures, and provides information for people with cerebral palsy and their families.
I also contribute to keeping information on drug treatments for epilepsy up to date, and to ongoing work on genetics and responses to drug treatments for epilepsy.
