Personal profile

Research interests

My applied research has focussed on measuring cost-effectiveness of healthcare interventions in randomised controlled trials and using decision analysis models.

I have particular interests in the economic evaluation of diagnostic tests and interventions for low back pain and sciatica, but collaborate widely with colleagues with interests in other clinical topics including cancer care, public health prevention, mental health and child health.

My methodological research interests centre on the use of variations in clinical practice as a method for commissioners and clinicians to identify and prioritise opportunities for disinvestment in healthcare.
