Current Research

  • THIS Institute funded postdoctoral fellowship exploring how to advance the science on audit and feedback (which is any summary of clinical performance of healthcare provided over a specified period of time) to improve healthcare quality and safety
  • TRiaDS programme (Translating Research into Practice: Guidance-based Implementation of Dental Evidence; funded by NHS Education for Scotland) https://www.abdn.ac.uk/hsru/what-we-do/research/projects/triads-444.php
  • Contributing to behavioural theory in trials research for the CGALL, STEER, and REBOA trials

 

 


Collaborations

  • TRiaDS (Translation Research in a Dental setting): a multidisciplinary research group that has been formed to develop a programme of knowledge transfer research embedded within the SDCEP guidance development process; it has public, academic, political and professional members. http://www.triads.org.uk/about-triads/
  • IMAGINE (IMpact Assessment of Guidelines Implementation and Education): a European-wide collaboration involving the European Academic Urology guidelines office and experts in urology, implementation science, and health services research and delivery.
