Overview

The overall objective of Mr Xiaomin Zhong's PhD program is to identify opportunities better to target clinical improvement activities for frail multimorbid elderly patients and to evaluate the extent of variability in clinical outcomes and treatments and their predictors. The results will be introduced to provide feedback to general practices (using a secure internet infrastructure), which can help identify opportunities to better target clinical improvement activities to frail patients in their practice.

Xiaomin is currently working on investigating the impact of Covid-19 on the appropriateness of antibiotic prescribing in primary care in England; evaluating broad-spectrum and repeat antibiotic prescribing by using the OpenSAFELY platform.
