Managing medical performance: the impact on clinicians and organisation
A study into cardiac surgery mortality rates has recently been featured by the ESRC as an 'impact case study'. Co-funded by the ESRC Public Services Programme and the General Medical Council, Dr Mark Exworthy and Professor Jonathan Gabe from Royal Holloway, plus Ian Rees Jones from Bangor University, it explored the impact of disclosure of death rates on cardiac surgeons in 2009.
Dr Mark Exworthy is Director of the Centre for Public Service Organisations (CPSO), which is based at the School of Management. In an extract (below) from a forthcoming article for Royal Holloway's Higher magazine, Dr Exworthy talks about improving global health through world-class research.
"Royal Holloway research reflects the breadth and depth of the challenges facing global health. For example, research has sought to understand the genetics of diseases that affect millions of people worldwide and has also addressed the challenges of implementing health reforms in the NHS and in developing countries. Royal Holloway actively engages government agencies, clinicians and, of course, patients in its research both in this country and across the globe.
"Through a programme of activities in 2011, Royal Holloway is convening health researchers from across campus to maximise the existing strengths and to foster further collaborations both inside and outside college. More details will be provided on the College website and in Higher in the coming months. In the meantime, you can search for a particular health research project, topic or publication at RHUL through the experts page of the College website."
