Chris Beeley is an Applied Researcher working in healthcare in the UK. He completed his PhD in Psychology at the University of Nottingham in 2009 and now works with Nottinghamshire Healthcare NHS Trust providing statistical analysis and other types of evaluation and reporting using routine data generated within the Trust. Chris has a special interest in the use of regression methods in applied healthcare settings, particularly forensic psychiatric settings, as well as in the collection, analysis, and reporting of patient feedback data.
Chris has been a keen user of R and a passionate advocate of open-source tools within research and healthcare settings since completing his PhD. He has made extensive use of R (and Shiny) to automate analysis and reporting for new patient feedback websites. This was funded by a grant from the NHS Institute for Innovation and made in collaboration with staff, service users, and carers within the Trust, particularly individuals from the Involvement Center.
