Research Description

My research started in the organisation of health care, using cancer registration to identify population-based samples and comparing place of care and mode of treatment as explanatory variables for survival and social outcomes for childhood leukaemia. In a randomised controlled trial of length of stay for maternity care, I learned the difficulties of direct interventional studies in health services research, and thereafter developed observational studies with both quantitative and qualitative approaches. Developing the field of cancer care outcomes, I was an early innovator in research on palliative care. Irene Higginson and I created the Support Team Assessment Schedule as a methodology for measuring outcomes in community-based services. Julia Addington-Hall and I measured outcomes of care of the dying across 21 health districts in England, producing the primary journal publications on palliative care needs for cardiovascular, respiratory and neurological illnesses. Mike Gill and I made innovative use of statistical models to review the impact of treatment on osteosarcoma survival nationally. Jo Bore and I made the first study comparing breast cancer treatments with clinical consensus guidelines. More recent work analysed national health care data sets to assess dimensions of quality of care for breast, colon, lung and prostate cancers in relation to multi-disciplinary teams and regional organisation of care. In all these studies, I have been concerned to relate organisational and policy inputs to population outcomes – a central concern for health systems.

The second dimension of my work, on environment and health started with a study with Rafi Alwash to explain socio-economic differences in child accidents in the home, and then a review of the benefits (or not) of seat belt legislation and cycle helmets in reducing road injuries. I made the first population-based study of the causes of cyclist deaths in London, and wrote the first health impact assessment of transport and health in London.i th Martin Utley, I developed modelling for health impact assessment, drawing population attributable risks from epidemiological studies, and developed an HIA on transport for the London Olympics. My third broad research theme has been on public health across Europe. My PhD work looked at the development and outcomes of the Italian national health system. I developed wider European contacts through working with the World Health Organisation and the European Public Health Association, leading to five successful collaborative programme grants from the European Commission. These have focused on the development of public health research by European countries.

Education Description

Teaching was a main part of my work initially as Senior Lecturer at UCL, as I was appointed without supporting staff. I developed courses on medical sociology for pre-clinical medical students, and on community medicine (epidemiology, health promotion, health services) for clinical students. I was examiner in these subjects for the University of London. Externally, I developed the London Health Services Research Group, which provided seminars for the wider NHS community in London. I held a grant at UCL to create a day-release course on community medicine for medical post-graduates, and taught a new course on health systems at the London School of Hygiene. For the NHS, I was regional advisor for public health medicine training. I supervised PhDs within UCL and examined externally for the London School of Hygiene and University of Liverpool, as well as externally to the MSc in Public Health at the University of Cambridge. Internationally, I have lectured at research meetings across European countries, particularly for the European collaborative projects I have lead.
