Teaching Overview

The main focus of my job is to manage the commercial and academic trials in the Department of Dermatology, however, I do have teaching commitments to the DCD and MSc courses.

I teach the DCD students about specific validated skin assessments which are used both in clinical trials and in clinical practice. One of these assessments, the Psoriasis Area and Severity Index (PASI) is used by clinicians to determine whether patients are suitable for the newly developed biological therapies.

I also teach the students on the subject of Conduct of Clinical Trials, which discusses study design and the clinical trial process.

I hold a workshop for the MSc students in which we work on the ethical considerations of clinical trials, the history behind Good Clinical Practice and the design of Patient Information sheets and Consent forms.

I also teach the specialist registrars on PASI scoring, for use with psoriasis patients.
