The Big Data and Better Ageing Research Group is actively researching InterRAI big data and ageing in a number of contexts.
Ageing in place with multiple sclerosis
International research has shown that on average individuals with multiple sclerosis are admitted to residential care at a younger age and when less cognitively impaired compared to the general population.
This research programme investigates some of the risk factors or early entry to residential care for people with MS.
Drug burden index
The impact of incontinence
Living with dementia
This research programme focusses on identifying factors that lead to earlier entry to residential care in persons with dementia.
Identifying these factors help clinical interventions and services allow those people to stay in their homes as long as possible.
Risk factors in social engagement
This research programme investigates the various aspects of social engagement that are associated with better health and therefore the ability age in place.
Students have contributed to many of our projects through research based postgraduate study and summer student research projects.
