My role as Research Director for the Professional Doctorate in Clinical Psychology involves developing and delivering the taught research components of the programme.  The aim is for graduates to be competent researchers in their own right, to be critical consumers of the research of others, to be able to contribute knowledgeably and critically to developments in evidence-based healthcare and to be able to reflect on the conceptual and ethical underpinnings of the work they do.  I also supervise research theses at Professional Doctorate and PhD levels and have been involved in supervising over 50 students to successful completion.  My own research interests focus particularly on the psychological aspects of prostate cancer and I have also written about the ethical aspects of evidence-based practice.
