Associate Postgraduate Dean – NHS Education for Scotland – 2 sessions 3. Honorary Senior Lecturer – University of Dundee 4. Academic health science partnership (AHSP) - lead for “Healthcare design and innovation” 1. CONSULTANT OTOLARYNGOLOGIST (NHS TAYSIDE 1995 – current) 1. Primary clinical role I am employed by NHS Tayside, primarily as a head and neck surgeon. My weekly clinical activity includes the diagnosis and management of patients with head and neck cancer. This work
  3. 3. 3 involves regular team working with oncologists, oral and maxillofacial surgeons, plastic surgeons, neurosurgeons, nursing and allied health care professionals. 2. Role within managed clinical network I set up and work as part of a managed clinical network with NHS Fife and do two, weekly clinical sessions at the Victoria hospital in Kirkcaldy. 3. Historical lead for Dundee Science center I was the NHS Tayside representative to the team that developed the Dundee Science Centre “Sensation”. I helped introduce the concept of focusing the centers philosophy on sciences linked to sensation and personally created a number of the educational exhibits within the center. 4. Roles within the Academic health science partnership (AHSP) in Tayside My NHS non-clinical activity has lead me to a number of interactive projects and roles that bridge between the NHS, NES and the University of Dundee. I joined the Academic Health Science Partnership (AHSP) and have had roles as co-chair of the “Education and Lifelong learning” subgroup and more recently as the lead for creating a “Health and social care design and innovation hub”. I hope to create a number of novel AHSP initiatives that will ultimately improve patient care, patient safety and research collaboration through education and lifelong learning. I have a long-term vision to create novel IT technologies that enhance communication between the UOD, NHS / NES and to create “Journeys in lifelong learning” for healthcare workers. 5. Activity linking AHSP with DJCAD I have been actively involved in creating research and education links between DJCAD and the AHSP. As part of the City of Dundee journey in “Design” we are formalising relationships between our organisations, thereby combining strengths in Healthcare / Social care / Lifesciences with the range of expertise held within DJCAD. I aspire to extend these links to engineering, computing and to the private and third sectors. We plan to engage our undergraduates and postgraduates in interdisciplinary co-design and innovation. I hope to look back in 15 years at a creative Dundee health and social care environment and economy that has flourished as a consequence of embracing “Healthcare product and service design ” and interdisciplinary working.
  4. 4. 4 2. ASSOCIATE POSTGRADUATE DEAN 1.Foundation and Hospital at night I lead the creation, management and implementation of the new foundation programme and curriculum in Tayside. At a national level, I lead the creation of an educational structure that supports the implementation of the “foundation curriculum” throughout Scotland. Together with NHS Tayside, I was the deanery lead for the introduction, design, structure and management of NHS Tayside “Hospital at night” 2. Cuschieri skills I lead a successful bid to fund and host a national temporal bone training facility for Scotland in Dundee. We received 300K in initial funding, which allowed the design and development of the Cuschieri “Anatomical and Theatre Skills Unit”. This unit compliments the other Cushieri skills labs and is used as a national resource for multi-professional anatomy, surgery and theatre skills training - Cuschieri facilities. I negotiated ongoing funding for the unit to support staff and running costs of approximately 100K annually. Through the development of this unit we host a wide range of skills courses that cover mainly surgical subspecialty curriculums, an example being the portfolio of ENT courses Cuschieri ENT Courses . In recent years the “Thiel” cadaveric model has opened up opportunities for a range of novel skills courses and research projects. 3.Current Deanery lead roles I lead the National Plastic surgery training program and ENT East of Scotland program. I also have a wide portfolio covering all of our surgical specialties, anaesthetics, pathology and emergency medicine. 3. HONOURARY SENIOR LECTURER / NES education, training and research roles 1. ENT Teaching curriculum Historically, I lead and redesigned the ENT undergraduate medical student phase 3 teaching curriculum, which is now managed by my colleague Mr. Jones. Annually, I oversee a number of medical student fourth year projects and special study modules. The majority of these have lead the students to presenting their work at meetings, conferences and to a number of publications.
  5. 5. 5 2. Foundation shadow training My deanery activity helped set up Foundation shadow training in Tayside. I now organise and oversee foundation shadow training in ENT and contribute regularly to phase 2 and 3 medical student teaching in clinics and theatre. 3. Lead roles in ENT SpR training I have a daily role in the education and skills training of ENT surgical trainees. Previously, I was the local postgraduate lead trainer in Tayside, later progressing to lead as program director for the East of Scotland ENT program for five years. I now lead this program at a NES national deanery level. 4. Novel technology / art and IT research I have created a research environment that now engages a number of medical students, foundation trainees, ST trainees, art and computing students in collective novel research projects related to surgical techniques, patient safety, education comics, online and augmented reality education tools. 5. IMSat research collaboration A team of ENT colleagues are engaged in collaborative research with the Institute for medical science and technology (IMSaT). We have developed intellectual property on elasticated retractor devices and are part of a consortium bid lead by Sir Alfred Cuschieri, applying for European union funding to develop a new surgical robotic system – “Precise”. I have extended our elasticated retractor research and clinical application to plastic, OMFS, vascular, orthopaedic, general and neurosurgery. Over the forthcoming years I believe that there will be significant advances made in the design of conformal and elasticated surgical devices and platforms made through interdisciplinary working with a range of surgical disciplines, IMSaT, DJCAD design teams and Karl Storz. 6. Skills training lead As part of my postgraduate training portfolio, I have helped set up and tutor skills training on the following courses: Bronchoscopy and oesophagoscopy, percutaneous tracheostomy with anaesthetics, emergency safe neck surgery, laryngectomy, thyroplasty, tracheostomy for nursing teams. 7. Support for Medical art masters students Over the past three years, I have facilitated active interaction and research with students studying for a master’s degree in medical art at the University of Dundee. This involves hosting six to eight students within our clinical environment and overseeing a number of master’s degree projects.
  6. 6. 6 8. Supervision of Scottish Graduate School for Arts & Humanities (SGSAH) internships I have created and will supervise three internships for SGSAH appointed PhD students. A national process is currently in place for appointment to the internships, which will each run for 3 months. I hope to use this as an annual method to introduce students from the humanities to research projects linked to health and social care and thereby create new environments of interdisciplinary research. Royal College of Surgeons of Edinburgh activities 1. Education resources I was the author of a “Head and Neck distance learning study guide” for the FRCS examination component of the SELECT RCSE education resource. 2. SAB and examiner in ENT For three years, I was a college examiner and member of the Specialty Advisory Board (SAB) in Otolaryngology. 3. SAB chair I set up and chaired the RCSE “Professions allied to Surgery” board for 3 years. This lead to the introduction of a number of advanced nurse practitioner roles within a wide range of surgical disciplines. In this role I helped set up the first “Advanced scrub practitioner” courses in Scotland in 2007. Research Profile MedicalSchool During my medical school training, I worked as a laboratory technician. This introduced me to working with live animals and to the microscopic assessment of cell damage done by chemotherapeutic agents. Registrartraining As an ENT registrar and senior registrar based in Edinburgh, I carried out a wide range of research projects linked to gaining a better understanding of peripheral nerve repair and regeneration. This body of animal laboratory research over three years concluded that there was little difference in morphological outcome following surgical repair, no matter what suture type was utilised. I set up a new facial nerve clinic and published on the use of botulinum toxin in the management of facial synkineses, facial electroneuronography and on the psychological impact of facial palsy. This research activity introduced me to clinical trials and to the creation of patient databases.
  7. 7. 7 As a senior registrar, I set up and ran the first ENT clinic devoted to the assessment and management of patients with HIV related disease. This lead to a better understanding of a number of aspects of HIV disease at a time when there was great uncertainty within the medical world on how to assess and manage HIV positive patients.

  12. 12. 12 6. Surgical guide Lonestar retractor system Head and Neck procedure guide 2014 Summary link to papers published - Google scholar Current research and innovation profile Innovation in surgicaltechnique / device design/ anatomy 1. Over the past three years I have published papers that support the introduction of elasticated retraction to surgical disciplines. I have stimulated debate on how we improve the design and scope of surgical retractor devices by publishing the first overview of retraction in surgery - “Current and future practices in surgical retraction” in the RCSED journal “The Surgeon” 2. I have pioneered a number of novel surgical techniques using the principles of “elasticated retraction”. These have lead to significant advancements in safer surgical access, reduced tissue trauma, enhanced trainee and trainer roles and reduced operating time. These techniques are now starting to be used by a wider range of ENT sub-specialties and are being introduced to a range of other surgical disciplines. The techniques have been introduced to a wider surgical audience through direct skills training events, poster and presentation at conferences and through “how I do it” manuals. 3. Together with industrial partners, I have published the first surgical manual on the safe use of “elasticated retraction” in head and neck surgery and have published a short review of the technique in “ENT and Audiology news” 4. In collaboration with IMSaT technology group - imsat.org/, Medical Physics, CAHID and industrial partners we are currently involved in elasticated retraction instrument design, laboratory and Thiel cadaver research and publication. We are awaiting the confirmation of patents on a number of retraction devices and hope to bring them to clinical use over the next few years. 5. Our IMSat team are partners in a consortium grant application for EU funding for the development of a new skull base surgical robot – “precise”. If successful, our ENT team will lead on the development of new surgical effector devices and I will take a personal lead on novel elastication based retractor technologies to support the robotic surgery platform. 6. In my Deanery role, I am developing closer links between the UOD CAHID department (Professor Tracey Wilkinson) and our NES Postgraduate Deanery. We plan to offer a much wider range of anatomical skills training to support healthcare workers and introduce Thiel cadaver based courses to physician, nursing and AHP teams.
  13. 13. 13 Innovation and collaborative researchwith Art / Technologiesand Computing 1. Over the past three years, I have a very active role supporting medical art student projects that have introduced 3D printing, educational APP’s and comic based education tools to our education environment handiwork/graphic-sequence.html - signin. This research has introduced me to a wide range of info-graphic and augmented reality techniques that will enhance healthcare education and training. I am in the process of developing education and research links with APP developers in Dundee (Waracle). 2. I have developed a number of education resources and technologies that support education and training. These include APP’s scrubbedin teaching - app, iBooks, comics and augmented reality tools. If brought to a bigger scale and audience, I believe that we could enhance the profile and scope of healthcare education and training in Tayside. 3. I have recently completed the “futurelearn” MOOC course on (innovation and enterprise) and understand that the UOD are now contributing to the creation of MOOCS, through the “futurelearn” platform. I propose to offer the development of “futurelearn’ modules that relate to healthcare design and innovation, as this platform provides an excellent method of providing education to a wider audience. 4. Together with a medical student colleague Chris McCann, I have designed a new communication system for communities (seedir) https://www.seedir.com/our-team, based on creating a directory of information for staff, Patients, groups and institutions. A stong emphasis of our design relates to improving the role of mentors and tutors and to the creation of an environment of communication for all staff and patients in Tayside. 5. I have recently joined a group in Dundee called “Thinkdifferent Dundee” This group has been set up by Alaistair McGill who is now taking a lead on Innovation for the UOD. Through my contact with Alastair and through recent discussion with Jean Ker, I believe that we should consider creating an environment that supports Innovation and entrepreneurial activity for all staff and patient groups through the structures within the new AHSP. This would involve the provision of educational resources and training at an early stage in healthcare professional studies and with direct support for entrepreneurs within our services. 6. I have taken on a new lead role for the AHSP – developing a “Healthcare Design and Innovation Hub” within the Ninewells Hospital concourse. I have also put forward proposals to set up an online platform to support “Journeys in lifelong healthcare learning” 7. Over the past year I have formalized a range of collaborative activities between the AHSP and DJCAD and hope to introduce “DESIGN” and particularly “service design” to NHS Tayside.
  14. 14. 14 Summary I have been fortunate enough to work for 20 years in an NHS and University environment that allows for creative career progression. I have progressed my ENT career to a position of leadership within head and neck cancer services, developed a national NES skills and education profile and now through my role linking AHSP and DJCAD aspire to create a vibrant, entrepreneurial environment of product and service design for health and social care. I hope to develop closer research and education links with the private and third sectors as part of this process and focus my activity on healthcare product and service design. I believe that we need to bring innovative design thinking, entrepreneurial education and support services to a much wider range of healthcare workers and most importantly to our patients. We have well respected national and international Tayside “brands” in lifesciences, skills training healthcare education, computing, engineering, art and design. The V&A development has put “design” at the heart of the City of Dundee’s roadmap for the future. We need to join that philosophy of thinking and use “design methodologies” to create new ways of working that cross- traditional academic and social boundaries and thereby grow our economy.
