I’m module coordinator for Research Methods and Evidence Based Practice modules for mainly nurses at Master’s and Degree level. I’m supervisor of Master’s nursing students utilising a systematic review or randomised controlled trial approach for their Dissertation.
I run Systematic Review workshops for staff development.
Subject external examiner
Journal referee for several trials and reviews assessing wound products
Topical Negative Pressure for Treating Chronic Wounds; A Systematic Review for the Cochrane Collaboration. I was the chief investigator. I initiated the review, liaised with Cochrane on information retrieval, critically appraised and synthesized the extracted data and wrote the review (first published in 2001).I updated the review two years later (published 2003).
A Clinical Evaluation Of An Alternating Pressure Mattress Replacement System; A Randomised Controlled Trial, funded by Huntleigh Health Care. I was the second investigator.
PhD in Physiology, funded by the Wellcome Trust: Factors Regulating Gastric Histamine Biosynthesis.
