I have recently completed a Delphi Study into the perceived effectiveness of centralised paediatric intensive care and transfer services in cases of meningococcal disease. (MSc dissertation topic)

I am currently in discussion with colleagues regarding the design of a longitudinal study into the adaptation of students into the Operating Department Practitioner role.
