Biography

Cognitive biases applied to physician reviewer care quality judgements

Background

An qualified with a BSc in Natural Sciences in 2012. Keen to apply the theory from these studies, he came to the University of Birmingham to embark on the undertaking of a multi-disciplinary Masters in Public Health (SEAL).  After completing this in 2014, he developed an interest in retrospective learning from hospital mortality reviews. An's collaborative research employs a range of methods including case study methodology, attitudinal surveys and hierarchical modelling to investigate influencers of the utility and physician care quality judgements during case note reviewing.
