A/Prof Ling Li has participated in a wide range of complex projects on various aspects of health services research, including patient safety, health care delivery, health informatics and clinical epidemiology. She was trained as a biostatistician and has a strong track record in designing and analysing large-scale studies to evaluate the impacts of health interventions using complex health datasets. She has been involved in study designs of cluster randomised trials, stepped wedge cluster randomised controlled trials, time and motion studies and observational studies. She has conducted advanced statistical analyses for several large-scale studies involving linked data from clinical information systems, including projects on pathology testing utilisation and evaluation, risk identification tools for the early detection of sepsis, and the effects of information technology on changes in error rates and clinicians’ work patterns etc. She has made important contributions to the development and application of statistical approaches to health services research.
