Summary: This research will encompass a population-based, patient-level analysis of heart failure in England over a 5-year period using a dataset created by linking the HES and NICOR databases. Analyses will look into the re-occurrence of hospitalisation after the initial diagnosis of heart failure, the influence of population factors on risk of re-hospitalisation and the resultant cost implications.
Summary: Heart disease and cancer are the commonest causes of death in the UK. Treatments are leading to better outcomes which means people are living longer with these conditions. This means more
people are living with both conditions. These conditions interact on many levels and yet there is little
current research focused on these interactions. The Virtual Cardio-Oncology Research Initiative
(VICORI) is a collaborative programme funded by the British Heart Foundation (BHF) and Cancer Research UK (CRUK) to investigate, using data collected as part of national audits, the interaction
between heart disease and cancer.
