Research

My research is multi-disciplinary, draws on psychological theories and knowledge and is focused on the safety and quality of healthcare and how systems can be designed to support safe human activity. I apply quantitative and qualitative methods to understand problems and develop and test solutions. Current areas of interest are organisational risk management processes, organisational resilience, cognitive work analysis, risk perception and communication, and simulation training for nursing. Clinical areas include inpatient diabetes care, care of older people, hepatitis C, osteoporosis, and anti-coagulation therapy and stroke prevention.
