Some of our other Research and Development Projects include:
- Professional – Computer Interface:
Research is being carried out to assess how computer applications can promote effective consulting. A second project is being carried out on how to develop an effective interface with cancer guidelines. This is a collaboration with University of Cambridge. Research is also being conducted into issues around Read Coding, why practices change computer systems, and into the introduction of nurse based near patient testing.
