Dr Jose Valderas, University of Oxford
I am an Academic General Practitioner and Head of the Health Services and Policy Research Group at the Department of Primary Care Health Sciences, University of Oxford.
Before joining the Department in March 2010, I held appointments at the National Primary Care Research and Development Centre, University of Manchester (2007-2010), the Department of Health Policy and Management, Johns Hopkins University (Baltimore, MD) (2006) and the Health Services Research Unit of IMIM-Hospital del Mar (Spain), for 8 years.
I have a strong commitment to high quality research (my main activity), clinical practice, and teaching. My research has covered many different aspects of research on structure, processes and outcome of health services, and currently my research focuses on three main inter-related topics: the use of patient reported outcomes in clinical practice, the provision of care for people with multi-morbidity, and the implementation of strategies for improving the quality and safety of primary care.
I hold a NIHR Clinician Scientist Award for the study of clinical applications of Patient Reported Outcomes in complex patients in Primary Care. I am a Senior Researcher at Policy Research Unit on Quality and Outcomes of Patient Centred Care, Senior Visiting Fellow at the London School of Economics (European Observatory of Health Systems and Policies), Associate Editor of the journals Quality of Life Research and European Journal of General Practice and member of the Cochrane Collaboration group on PRO Methods
