Role in the project

Objective 1: Estimate the incidence and natural history, including recurrent stroke, after intracerebral haemorrhage (ICH)

  • Identifying relevant data sets from Global Burden of Disease study and population data sets
  • Estimate the incidence of ICH, the natural history in the first 2 years after stroke including risk of recurrence
  • Project EU estimates over the next 20 years for ICH

Objective 2: Develop a health economic model to address the effects of the trial

  • Identify data requirements for the health economic model to ensure they are recorded in the trial
  • Build upon existing Markov and Discrete Event Simulation models developed by the study team (Saka et al, 2009) in previous European and UK studies
  • Model the changes in the outcomes predicted given the trial working in the ‘real world’ situation
