Synopsis

We have previously examined the relationship between hyperglycaemia and adverse outcomes in a number of clinical situations including myocardial infarction, use of TPN, and admission through Emergency. We have previously conducted a randomised controlled trial of glucose lowering in myocardial infarction and are currently conducting one in patients receiving TPN. There are a number of other clinical situations that can also be examined for this project. A simple project might involve medical record reviews. If the student is interested and qualified, a clinical component can be included.

Additional Information

Will involve either clinical work or medical records reviews
