Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Internal medicine
  • Disease
  • Statistics

Gerontology, Dementia, Frailty Index, Cohort study and Disease are his primary areas of study. Kenneth Rockwood studies Gerontology, focusing on Frail elderly in particular. Kenneth Rockwood focuses mostly in the field of Frail elderly, narrowing it down to matters related to Geriatric assessment and, in some cases, Sex factors and Elderly people.

His Dementia research is multidisciplinary, incorporating perspectives in Alzheimer's disease and Psychiatry, Cognition. Kenneth Rockwood interconnects All cause mortality, Frailty phenotype, Ageing, Healthcare utilization and National Health and Nutrition Examination Survey in the investigation of issues within Frailty Index. Kenneth Rockwood combines subjects such as Odds ratio, Prospective cohort study and Cohort with his study of Cohort study.

His most cited work include:

  • Frailty in elderly people (3436 citations)
  • A global clinical measure of fitness and frailty in elderly people (3191 citations)
  • Dementia prevention, intervention, and care (2073 citations)

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

His primary areas of investigation include Gerontology, Dementia, Frailty Index, Disease and Psychiatry. His studies deal with areas such as Cohort study, Activities of daily living and Geriatrics as well as Gerontology. His work carried out in the field of Cohort study brings together such families of science as Prospective cohort study and Cohort.

His Dementia study integrates concerns from other disciplines, such as Alzheimer's disease and Cognition, Cognitive impairment. His Frailty Index study frequently intersects with other fields, such as Demography. His Disease research focuses on Clinical trial and how it relates to Physical therapy.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Gerontology (49.89%)
  • Dementia (36.36%)
  • Frailty Index (18.63%)

What were the highlights of his more recent work (between 2018-2021)?

  • Gerontology (49.89%)
  • Dementia (36.36%)
  • Frailty Index (18.63%)

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

Kenneth Rockwood mainly focuses on Gerontology, Dementia, Frailty Index, Cognition and Internal medicine. In his work, Cohort and Odds ratio is strongly intertwined with Cohort study, which is a subfield of Gerontology. The Dementia study combines topics in areas such as Physical therapy, Goal Attainment Scaling, Cognitive impairment and Tracking.

His Physical therapy study combines topics from a wide range of disciplines, such as Clinical trial and Scale. He works mostly in the field of Frailty Index, limiting it down to topics relating to Demography and, in certain cases, National Health and Nutrition Examination Survey. His work deals with themes such as PsycINFO and Cognitive decline, which intersect with Cognition.

Between 2018 and 2021, his most popular works were:

  • Dementia prevention, intervention, and care: 2020 report of the Lancet Commission. (303 citations)
  • Investigation of frailty as a moderator of the relationship between neuropathology and dementia in Alzheimer's disease: a cross-sectional analysis of data from the Rush Memory and Aging Project (97 citations)
  • Investigation of frailty as a moderator of the relationship between neuropathology and dementia in Alzheimer's disease: a cross-sectional analysis of data from the Rush Memory and Aging Project (97 citations)

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

  • Internal medicine
  • Disease
  • Statistics

Kenneth Rockwood mostly deals with Gerontology, Dementia, Frailty Index, Internal medicine and Demography. He has researched Gerontology in several fields, including Scale, Population ageing, Cognition, Health policy and Ageing. His Dementia research is under the purview of Disease.

His study looks at the intersection of Frailty Index and topics like Rheumatology with Systemic lupus. When carried out as part of a general Internal medicine research project, his work on Confidence interval, Quality of life and Cohort study is frequently linked to work in In patient, therefore connecting diverse disciplines of study. The study incorporates disciplines such as Young adult, Regression analysis, Brain Structure and Function and Receiver operating characteristic in addition to Demography.
