Dr Natalie Armstrong
The SAPPHIRE (Social Science Applied to Healthcare Improvement Research) Group in the department of Health Sciences uses social science theory and methods to undertake research and evaluation in order to improve the quality and safety of healthcare. A developing area of interest in the group is around overdiagnosis and overtreatment, which occur when a diagnosis is ‘correct’ according to current standards but the diagnosis or associated treatment has a low probability of benefitting the patient, and may instead be harmful. We would welcome Academic Foundation doctors keen to explore this area further either in general terms or as it relates to a particular clinical area.

Dr Carolyn Tarrant
The SAPPHIRE (Social Science Applied to Healthcare Improvement Research) Group has expertise in qualitative methods and health care improvement, with particular interests in acute care, maternity care, healthcare associated infections, and measurement for improvement. A qualitative project would be available to explore junior doctors' experiences of working in acute care at weekends, in relation to their role and professional development; we would also be happy to discuss other possible research topics.

Professor Gavin Murphy
As the Director of the University’s Clinical Trials Unit, I oversee a portfolio of clinical trials spanning multiple clinical areas (including cardiovascular, respiratory, diabetes, mental health, cancer, dermatology and public health) and all stages of development, from initial idea to final publication. Your placement would thus allow for both breadth and depth of exposure.
