Dr Carmen Tsang
BSc MSc PhD
in Health Services Research
15-17 Tavistock Place
Before joining LSHTM in 2013, I was a researcher at the Dr Foster Unit at Imperial College London and the Imperial Patient Safety Translational Research Centre (2007-2013). My background is in the evaluation of quality and safety in health care. My PhD in patient safety was completed at Imperial College London.
I organise and teach on the Distance Learning Health Care Evaluation module of the MSc in Public Health.
My research interests include investigating the relationships between processes of care and patient outcomes using (and linking) datasets of electronic health records from primary care and secondary care (e.g. Clinical Practice Research Datalink, CPRD, and Hospital Episode Statistics, HES).
Previously, I worked on the National Audit of Breast Cancer in Older Patients and the Falls and Fragility Fractures Audit Programme at the Clinical Effectiveness Unit, The Royal College of Surgeons of England. I also led an audit on obstetric practice in preventing early-onset neonatal Group B Streptococcal disease in the UK, in partnership with the Royal College of Obstetricians and Gynaecologists.
