Trauma Registrar interested in collaborative research
I have led a number of trainee collaborative projects, coordinating 250 collaborators from over 80 NHS sites. Using this data, I co-led a successful NIHR Research for Patient Benefit (RfPB) grant application for the Weight-bearing in Ankle Fractures (WAX) trial. This will determine the most clinically and cost-effective strategy for weight-bearing surgery for an ankle fracture. My DPhil will use behavioural change theory to facilitate safe early weight-bearing after ankle fracture surgery.
I am leading a James Lind Alliance priority setting partnership (PSP) in “complex fractures", working with patients to determine research priorities for those injured during major trauma.
I am working with BOTA and Oxford Trauma to develop the NIHR/ RCS "Associate PI scheme". We aim to encourage surgeons to integrate research into their every-day practice, through involvement in multi-center clinical trials.
Outside of work, I'm often found in the Iffley Road sports centre training with the University of Oxford Mixed Martial Arts club: watch this space for the first varsity!
