BMSc, MSc, DPhil, MD
Honorary Fellow, Centre for Evidence-Based Medicine
I joined the department in 2009 as a Rhodes Scholar from Canada. I recently completed a DPhil in Primary Health Care and MSc in Evidence-Based Health Care while completing the MD/PhD Programme at the University of Alberta. I am currently a paediatric resident at the Hospital for Sick Children at the University of Toronto.
The care of children is an important part of general practice yet only 3% of the UK’s pay-for-performance markers in general practice relate to them and there is no a set of child-relevant indicators that could be implemented in UK primary care. Using both quantitative and qualitative methodologies, my DPhil thesis focused on developing indicators to measure the quality of care delivered to children in primary care.
My MSc thesis focused on identifying which children in primary care are at risk of influenza-related complications. This research was part of a 5 year NIHR programme grant to study the early use of antibiotics in ‘at risk’ children with influenza.
My other passion includes medical education and I am an honorary fellow at the Centre for Evidence-Based Medicine (CEBM) where I teach on workshops and lecture medical students. I helped plan the Evidence Live 2013 conference in Oxford, organised jointly with the BMJ and CEBM, and contribute to the 'Trust the Evidence' blog particularly related to improving the evidence-base for children. I also co-founded the paediatric medical education website PedsCases, sit on the CMAJ Editorial Advisory Board and have an enthusiastic interest in social media with an active Twitter account.
