I teach on the Comprehensive Systeamtic Review Training Programme (JBI methodology) for the Wales Cenre of Evidenced Based Care and I also teach systematic review methodology across a number on postgraduate courses

I have worked on projects funded by the GNC for England and Wales Trust, the Wales Office of Research and Development for Health and Social Care.   Most recently working on the EPIC Project   'Evidence into Practice: Evaluating a Child-Centred Intervention for Diabetes Medicine Management'   was commissioned in 2007 by the National Institute for Health Research Service Delivery and Organisation Programme (SDO/211/2007 ISRCTN17551624).   I successfully completed a number of systematic reviews using a wide variety of approaches/methodologies. My most recent review has been for The Wales Centre for Evidence-Based Care, a Collaborating Centre of the Joanna Briggs Institute at the Cardiff School of Nursing and Midwifery Studies which looked at the transition experiences of newly graduate nurses.
