Evaluation of surgical outcomes using administrative hospital data (2021)
Thesis
El-Dhuwaib, Y. (2021). Evaluation of surgical outcomes using administrative hospital data. (Thesis). Keele University

Hospital Episode Statistics (HES) is the main hospital administrative dataset in England. Since the early 1990s HES has been used for research. The aim of the thesis is to evaluate the use of HES data to measure surgical outcomes. Objectives: 1.... Read More about Evaluation of surgical outcomes using administrative hospital data.

Applied statistical methods for prediction modelling of upper limb functional recovery after stroke (2019)
Thesis
Al-Shallawi, A. N. S. (2019). Applied statistical methods for prediction modelling of upper limb functional recovery after stroke. (Thesis). Keele University. Retrieved from https://keele-repository.worktribe.com/output/414444

Stroke is the third largest cause of death in the world, with a significant contribution to disability. Motor function impairment, encompassing upper limb impairment, is the most significant post-stroke impairment. Such an impairment contributes to r...

A pilot study to identify serum biomarkers for post-stroke spasticity and related skeletal muscle changes (2019)
Thesis
Wasif, A. M. (2019). A pilot study to identify serum biomarkers for post-stroke spasticity and related skeletal muscle changes. (Thesis). Keele University. Retrieved from https://keele-repository.worktribe.com/output/414326

Spasticity is a common sensory-motor dysfunction observed following a stroke, and it is one of the signs indicating damage to the upper motor neurone system at the spinal or cerebral level. Stroke survivors often experience Some resistance to passive... Read More about A pilot study to identify serum biomarkers for post-stroke spasticity and related skeletal muscle changes.

A comparison of statistical techniques used in the longitudinal analysis of the modified Rankin scale in stroke randomised controlled trials (2018)
Thesis
Potts, J. E. (2018). A comparison of statistical techniques used in the longitudinal analysis of the modified Rankin scale in stroke randomised controlled trials. (Thesis). Keele University. Retrieved from https://keele-repository.worktribe.com/output/412318

Most analyses in stroke clinical trials assess the primary outcome at a single time point and do not consider conducting a longitudinal analysis, even when the outcome has been recorded at several time points. Efforts to improve the quality of statis...
