 My main activities are divided between providing direct clinical care to patients, research and teaching.As a researcher my main focus is on evidence synthesis and the acquisition and generation of high quality evidence that can support and underpin clinical practice and policy. Pivotal to this is the transparent availability of all data, and for that reason I am a supporter of the AllTrials campaign. Despite having a predominant interest in evidence synthesis, I also have experience in clinical trials, database analysis and qualitative work. I am a Principle Investigator and co-investigator on a number of current projects. I also take an interest in how medical evidence is presented to to patients and the public in social and traditional media.As Deputy Director of CEBM I am involved with supporting the Centre in its research, methodology and teaching of evidence based medicine.
