Characteristics of home-based nursing clients

Description 
This project involves using a large, longitudinal administrative database to understand the characteristics of individuals using a large home-based nursing service. In addition, understanding how these characteristics have changed over time, and how large-scale changes to the health care system may have affected care can also be included in the analysis. This project will include a literature review, and data analysis using Stata. Data analysis can be tailored to the skills of the student, but can range from descriptive through to advanced modelling. Findings of this research will help to inform care within Bolton Clarke and beyond, and help to target and tailor services to the individuals who require them the most.
