Dr Luke Budworth joined the YQSR in 2023 as a senior research data analyst within the Yorkshire and Humber National Institute for Health Research Patient Safety Research Collaboration Centre (PSRC).

Luke works across the PSRC, but mainly within the Rethinking Safety Intelligence for Improvement theme leading projects aiming to build tools and conduct analyses with large healthcare datasets to tackle key patient safety challenges.

By background he is a research psychologist and data analyst, having received an MSc and PhD in heath psychology (University of Leeds, 2015 & 2018) and MSc in health data analytics (University College London, 2022).

Luke’s PhD work assessed the prevalence, detectability, and impact of pre-operative recreational substance use on post-operative outcomes – and potential strategies to help patients mitigate harm.

Post-PhD he was a research fellow with the YQSR (2019-2022), leading a multi-hospital retrospective study assessing associations between emergency doctor decision-making, patient health outcomes, and healthcare resource use. He also provided statistical support for projects in the field of patient safety, including an MRC-funded project with clinical and commercial partners developing a device to prevent nasogastric tube-related ‘never events’.

In 2022 Luke joined the Institute of Rheumatic & Musculoskeletal Medicine at the University of Leeds, providing statistical support and analysis for several large research projects. Luke’s personal projects primarily focused on the analysis of machine-learning derived osteoarthritis biomarkers from imaging data, primarily involving hierarchal (multilevel) frequentist and Bayesian generalised (non-) linear modelling.
