Background

Following on from his doctoral research exploring the impact of Information and Communications Technology (ICT) on different organisational levels within the NHS, Dr Sánchez-Vázquez worked for Warwick Medical school on the SAFER (Support and Assessment for Fall Emergency Referrals) Trial, exploring the impact of Computerised Clinical Decision Support technology used by National Health Service (NHS) ambulance service personnel, and then for Cardiff University Medical School on a study exploring the organisational culture underpinning what we understand by excellent care vs. abuse and neglect of NHS inpatients, and the mechanisms by which this can be measured or assessed.
