Research methodology: my goal is to generate the best possible evidence in a challenging field of research where experimental work is not always possible.
Further, a thread in my academic output is conceptual clarification using formal scientific methods when helpful to advance the research.
My expertise covers the design and performance of experimental and observational studies; prospective and retrospective studies; quantitative and qualitative studies; surveys and interviews; evidence based guideline development and development of consensus; cross-national comparative work with pooled and individual patient data.
