Research

My main research focus involves investigating ways to make clinical decision support more relevant and clinically informative. I have initially focused on drug allergy alerting systems but I am also looking at wider applications by integrating population data, comorbidities and drug groupings into clinical decision making.

After many years of involvement at a practice and advisory level, I still participate in research into age appropriate medicines for children.

Additional details

I also work internationally as a pharmaceutical consultant, advising on medicines policy, rational drug use and evidence-based medicine.
