David Goldsbury is a statistician/data analyst with over 20 years of applied data analysis experience. His expertise is in analysing and interpreting large, linked, routinely collected, administrative health data sets. His research focus includes patterns of cancer care, costs of cancer care, care at the end of life, and the use of linked data for epidemiological research.
He is currently undertaking a PhD at the University of Sydney, carrying out a study of the costs of cancer in Australia. This research aims to assess various health system costs, indirect costs and patient out-of-pocket costs, using the 45 and Up Study and a number of linked health data collections. The results will help guide economic analyses of cancer care in New South Wales and Australia, including the evaluation of potential cancer control interventions.
