Overview

Having worked in the NHS for nearly 10 years, I have encountered the profound impact health services research has on my daily practice. Inspired by this, I have taken time away from my training to undertake an MD.

 

My specialism of Orthopaedic surgery has seen a seen the rapid rise of patient reported outcome measures (PROMs) over recent years. These measures, that aim to quantify the outcome of surgical interventions as the patient sees it, are shaping modern research, from the humble inception of a research question, to the protocol for an international randomised control trial.

Research interests

Funded by the British Elbow and Shoulder Society, and supervised by Professor Jose Valderas, Dr Vicki Goodwin MBE, Professor Rod Taylor and Mr Chris Smith we are undertaking a body of work focused around elbow tendinopathy. We are investigating the role and validity of PROMs for this condition, whilst also looking at the utility of novel injection therapies.
