MB, ChB, BSc (Hons) Experimental Pathology, MRCP(UK), FJFICM to FCICM
Originally from Lewis, I came to Australia in 2005 for a year, and stayed to finish ICM training in 2009. Currently a consultant in ICM in Darwin, NT, I do what I can to make decisions, and the evidence for them, easier. I chair the Department of Heath and Top End HREC and the NT Regional Committee of the CICM. I sit as the NT government representative on the Clinical Trials Project Reference Group and the National Mutual Acceptance of Ethics and Governance Jurisdictional Working Group. My blog is mostly about our local Journal Club but has material on reproducible workflows for audit cycles, applying knowledge from my studies for the MSc in Epidemiology from the London School: lewisfromlewis.wordpress.com. I hope those reproducible audits will deepen a culture of rigorous, transparent decision making around clinical performance.
