Title of PhD project: Developing and evaluating an educational complex intervention at the primary-secondary care interface.


Using a combination of qualitative synthesis and original research, a ‘Practice-based Small Group Learning’ educational module was created. The MRC framework for complex intervention development guided the work. The module was piloted in NHS Grampian and further shaped by contextual feedback from across NHS Scotland. The final phase of the research programme was to run the educational intervention in NHS Highland with groups of interface clinicians. Three-month post intervention, research impact was explored.
