Dr Kay Wang, University of Oxford
I am a GP and clinical research fellow based at the University of Oxford. My current programme of research is on development and evaluation of an online asthma management intervention in primary care (www.definestudy.com). The intervention involves use of the fractional exhaled nitric oxide (FeNO) breath test to guide clinical decisions during routine asthma reviews. The work is funded by my NIHR postdoctoral fellowship and a NIHR Programme Grant for Applied Research, which I am co-leading.
I was Oxford Programme Lead of the NIHR-funded ARCHIE programme on early antibiotic use in children with influenza-like illness who also have pre-existing risk factors for clinical deterioration. As part of my DPhil, I also led multi-centre primary care studies on whooping cough and persistent cough in children and young adults.
I have experience of supervising MSc and DPhil students and was previously the academic GP training lead at Oxford. I also have experience of teaching at undergraduate and postgraduate level, and was one of the original core members of the team who developed the mixed methods research module of the MSc in Evidence Based Health Care. I am honoured to have recently been nominated for Fellowship of the Royal College of General Practitioners.
