PhD in Visualising Complex Care Pathways in Later Life

Project Summary

Health care in later life is complex and hard to navigate. We aim to apply a combination of data visualisation, natural language processing, and process modelling to medical guidelines and patient care data, so as to visualise care pathways that are personalised to individual patients and easy to understand. Our ambition is that these interactive visualisations can help people in later life gain a deeper understanding of their trajectories of care, as well as enable discussions with specialists and family members around adapting care to their wishes, priorities and needs.

Aim

To visualise personalised care pathways to individuals in later life to help understand, explore, and discuss with doctors and family members.
