Dr Melanie Chalder

My research covers a wide range of clinical, organisational and methodological areas.  

These include older age (e.g. dementia, healthy living, hospital avoidance), mental health (e.g. depression, anxiety), delivery of care (e.g. primary, secondary, ambulatory, emergency), study design / implementation (e.g. randomised controlled trials, observational studies), behavioural interventions (e.g. alcohol use, smoking, physical activity) and respiratory disease (e.g. COPD, childhood asthma).
