‘Evaluating the hospital management of self-harm patients: an instrumental variable approach’
Robert Carroll is a PhD student based at the School of Social and Community Medicine, University of Bristol. His PhD research is focused on evaluating the effectiveness of routine aspects of the clinical care of hospital presenting self- harm patients. Observational studies assessing the effect of interventions for self-harm patients often suffer from confounding by indication, where a patient's illness severity is associated with the likelihood of treatment and outcome. To overcome these problems, Robert’s work has involved the use of instrumental variable analysis, a method that can potentially overcome problems of confounding by indication in observational studies where treatment is not randomly allocated.
