Ross McQueenie University of Glasgow, UK
Ross McQueenie is a general practice and primary care researcher at University of Glasgow studying rheumatoid arthritis with UK Biobank, a large data set containing lifestyle, demographic, and biomarker data from over 500,000 participants. This work involves modeling the interaction between rheumatoid arthritis and both multimorbidity and individual long-term conditions (including stroke, atrial fibrillation, chronic obstructive pulmonary disease, and chronic pain). He has also examined the causes and effects of missed general practice appointments on patients using a first of its kind data set involving over 800,000 patients in over 130 practices across Scotland. This data linked general practice records with death data from Scottish Morbidity Records and secondary care data sets including A&E, mental health care, inpatient, and outpatient data.
