Teaching

I teach in Years 4, 5 and 6 of the MBChB programme, in our General Practice and Rural Health modules. I have particular interests in practical application of Evidence-based Practice in clinical care, and in cultural aspects of Medicine.

Clinical

I work as a part-time General Practitioner at Te Kāika, a multidisciplinary medical practice, dental practice and social service provider focused on serving Māori, Pasifika and high needs patients.

Research

I am interested in research in primary health care, including links between General Practice and other health professionals.

I have an interest in community mental health, and have worked with Dr Shyamala Nada-Raja and research students on a model we call COMHEART (Community oriented mental health evaluation, action, research and training).

I work with my teaching colleagues on medical education research, particularly into the SECO Clinic (a simulated clinic designed in our department and used widely in our teaching).

I work primarily with qualitative research, particularly using conversation analysis. I am an Associate of the ARCH Group (Applied Research in Communication on Health) , which is based at University of Otago Wellington.

Additional details

I have wide interests in the humanities (especially music, literature, theatre, film), both in their own right and as they apply to health care.

I am now a proud grandfather.
