Personal profile

Research Focus

My programme of research focuses on the recognition and management of patient deterioration in acute hospital wards.  My primary area of interest is the effectiveness of Rapid Response Systems (RRS). Funded research has focused on the impact of early warning systems and critical care education on the success of RRS interventions and family perceptions of deterioration and escalation of care.

My methodological expertise includes systematic reviews, realist reviews, scoping reviews; realist evaluation involving qualitative methods (interviews); process evaluation; documentary analysis (charts, audits) and surveys (national and international).
