2016 - Fellow of the Australian Academy of Health and Medical Science

Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Psychiatry
  • Internal medicine
  • Major depressive disorder

His primary areas of investigation include Global health, Demography, Years of potential life lost, Life expectancy and Psychiatry. His study in Global health is interdisciplinary in nature, drawing from both Disease burden, Disease, Cause of death and Child mortality. The study incorporates disciplines such as Disability-adjusted life year, Epidemiology and Gerontology in addition to Demography.

In his study, which falls under the umbrella issue of Years of potential life lost, Risk factor and Population health is strongly linked to Environmental health. His Life expectancy research is multidisciplinary, incorporating elements of Per capita and Epidemiological transition. His biological study spans a wide range of topics, including Eating disorders, Comorbidity, Substance abuse and Anxiety.

His most cited work include:

  • A comparative risk assessment of burden of disease and injury attributable to 67 risk factors and risk factor clusters in 21 regions, 1990-2010: a systematic analysis for the Global Burden of Disease Study 2010 (7776 citations)
  • Global, regional, and national incidence, prevalence, and years lived with disability for 301 acute and chronic diseases and injuries in 188 countries, 1990-2013: a systematic analysis for the Global Burden of Disease Study 2013 (6156 citations)
  • Disability-adjusted life years (DALYs) for 291 diseases and injuries in 21 regions, 1990-2010: a systematic analysis for the Global Burden of Disease Study 2010 (5887 citations)

What are the main themes of his work throughout his whole career to date?

His primary areas of study are Psychiatry, Mental health, Epidemiology, Demography and Public health. Within one scientific family, Harvey Whiteford focuses on topics pertaining to Health policy under Mental health, and may sometimes address concerns connected to Health promotion. His Epidemiology research includes elements of Systematic review, Burden of disease and Incidence.

His studies deal with areas such as Prevalence, Life expectancy, Years of potential life lost and Gerontology as well as Demography. His Life expectancy research incorporates elements of Global health, Cause of death and Epidemiological transition. His studies in Global health integrate themes in fields like Disease, Disease burden and Environmental health.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Psychiatry (69.18%)
  • Mental health (59.63%)
  • Epidemiology (33.17%)

What were the highlights of his more recent work (between 2016-2021)?

  • Mental health (59.63%)
  • Psychiatry (69.18%)
  • Life expectancy (18.09%)

In recent papers he was focusing on the following fields of study:

His primary scientific interests are in Mental health, Psychiatry, Life expectancy, Demography and Epidemiology. Harvey Whiteford focuses mostly in the field of Mental health, narrowing it down to topics relating to Gerontology and, in certain cases, Health care. His Life expectancy research includes themes of Global health, Demographic transition and Epidemiological transition.

Harvey Whiteford is studying Mortality rate, which is a component of Demography. His Epidemiology study incorporates themes from Population growth, Systematic review, Burden of disease and Disease burden. Harvey Whiteford focuses mostly in the field of Disease burden, narrowing it down to matters related to Environmental health and, in some cases, Risk factor.

Between 2016 and 2021, his most popular works were:

  • Global, regional, and national incidence, prevalence, and years lived with disability for 354 diseases and injuries for 195 countries and territories, 1990-2017: a systematic analysis for the Global Burden of Disease Study 2017 (2508 citations)
  • Global, regional, and national incidence, prevalence, and years lived with disability for 328 diseases and injuries for 195 countries, 1990–2016: a systematic analysis for the Global Burden of Disease Study 2016 (2465 citations)
  • Global, regional, and national age-sex specific mortality for 264 causes of death, 1980–2016: a systematic analysis for the Global Burden of Disease Study 2016 (2443 citations)

In his most recent research, the most cited papers focused on:

  • Internal medicine
  • Psychiatry
  • Health care

Harvey Whiteford focuses on Demography, Life expectancy, Global health, Epidemiology and Mortality rate. His work carried out in the field of Demography brings together such families of science as Schizophrenia, Cohort study, Eating disorders, Disease burden and Comorbidity. His studies examine the connections between Disease burden and genetics, as well as such issues in Environmental health, with regards to Risk factor.

His research in Life expectancy is mostly concerned with Years of potential life lost. His Global health study combines topics in areas such as Index, Fertility and Gerontology. His Epidemiology research integrates issues from Population growth and Pediatrics.
