Philip Schluter is Professor of health science, University of Canterbury New Zealand's inaugural professor of biostatistics, and is passionate about population health.

He bring extensive biostatistical and epidemiological knowledge and experience to the interRAI group.

He is keen to utilize interRAI data so that decision-makers have quality empirical-evidence upon which to inform their policies and practices, and so that we can understand and improve health of older people in our country for the future.
