Research Outline      2015-06-16 19:17:41

With a background in psychiatry and epidemiology, I have been focusing on research into i) the aetiology and prevention of suicide and self-harm; ii) the determinants and promotion of mental health in the community, workplace, and the population; iii) the applications of advanced epidemiological, spatial, and multi-level analyses in the previous two areas to better understand their determinants at the individual and community levels and the interactions. I have worked with local and international researchers conducting a series of studies using various research designs to investigate time trends, geographic variations, and risk factors of suicide and self-harm and evaluate intervention efforts using data from Taiwan, other Asian countries, and countries from other parts of the world, with the aim to inform prevention strategies with an evidence base.

 

我的背景為精神醫學與流行病學,研究聚焦於(1)自殺與自我傷害的原因與預防;(2)社區、職場與人群精神健康的決定因子與促進;(3)應用流行病學、空間分析、和多層次分析於自殺與精神健康研究,以了解兩者在個人與社區層次的決定因子及其交互作用。我曾與本地和國際學者合作,利用來自台灣、其它亞洲國家,以及其它地區國家的資料,以不同研究設計分析自殺與自我傷害的時間趨勢、地理差異,和危險因子,以及評估預防效果,以促進實證預防策略之發展。
