Contribution to Education and Clinical Audits

A key aspect of clinical governance, I appreciate the important role that audit plays in ensuring the highest quality of care for patients. I have been involved in the following:

‘Clinical relevance of post-operative radiograph regimen in adolescent idiopathic scoliosis and associated radiation risk’

Guided By: Mr Philip Sell

Role: Audit design, analysis and report of findings

Outcome: Routine use of postoperative radiographs in AIS in a patient with an uneventful course should be minimised.

Leadership & Management Experience

I have had an excellent insight into the pressures and challenges of being a senior doctor and have contributed significantly to the organisational and planning aspects of the multidisciplinary environments I have worked in.

This has included:

  • Organising faculty in a cervical cadaveric course at Queen’s Medical Centre in April 2019
  • M & M Coordinator for a spinal unit at Queen’s Medical Centre in June and September sessions 2018.
  • Academic Coordinator for Spinal unit at Queen’s Medical Centre, autumn session 2018
  • Part of organizing team of a cadaveric workshop in International spine and spinal injuries conference held in December 2009 at Chandigarh, India.
  • Organized “Basic spine workshop” on saw bone models and goat spine in April 2014, in the capacity of chief organizer, at ESI hospitals Basaidarapur, New Delhi.
