Current Research Interests

My over-arching interest is in applied health service research: addressing the T2, T3 and increasingly T4 translational gaps.   I am interested in the development and evaluation of complex interventions and in the challenge of implementing effective interventions in routine practice.

Research Interests

Research interests focus on the delivery of respiratory care within the 'real-life' primary care setting. Projects include:

  • Self-management education, especially for people with asthma and COPD
  • Development of complex interventions and especially implementation of effective interventions in routine practice
  • Tele-monitoring of asthma and COPD
  • The palliative care needs of people with COPD
  • The role of GPs with a Special Interest, and the reconfiguration of respiratory services within primary care organisations
  • Impact of Connecting for Health IT on the consultation
