BSc Hons (Aberdeen), PhD (Dundee)
Programme Manager with the Scottish Dental Clinical Effectiveness Programme (SDCEP).
A member of the TRiaDS (Translation Research in a Dental Setting) multi-disciplinary research group.
My research interests are in knowledge translation - the implementation of research evidence in clinical practice.
SDCEP operates within NHS Education for Scotland, collaborating with the Scottish dental institutions and other stakeholders to develop and disseminate user-friendly, evidence-based guidance on priority topics for dental healthcare in Scotland.
TRiaDS has established a framework for implementation of guidance and conducts and evaluates integrated, multi-disciplinary translation research embedded within SDCEP guidance development. TRiaDS aims to both promote the implementation of guidance recommendations and to understand the basis for choosing and developing knowledge translation interventions.
