My research project
Improving predictive validity of tumour markers: Developing and validating predictive models using a large United Kingdom primary care database
In this project, routinely collected NHS data from one if the UK’s largest primary care databases Orchid will be used to develop and validate predictive models for more accurate diagnoses of cancers. This will improve the understanding of the predictive value of tumour markers in relation to clinically relevant outcomes – e.g. the need for treatment. In the future, this could improve the usage of NHS resources and patient care.
