About

Derek Kyte, MSc, is a current recipient of a NIHR School for Primary Care Doctoral Studentship (2011-2014). His doctoral research is focused on the methodological and ethical issues surrounding quality of life evaluation and the implementation of best-practice Patient Reported Outcome (PRO) measurement in clinical trials. He is deputy lead of the UoB Patient-Reported Outcomes Research Group and a member of the International Society for Quality of Life Research (ISOQOL). His secondary research area, arising from over 15 years clinical experience as a specialist musculoskeletal physiotherapist, is concerned with diagnostic decision-making in musculoskeletal disorders.
