Research Interests

I have had a long held interest in case reporting on the clinical content of general practice. I like to view the everyday clinic as my "lab". With this in mind, I have published a series of case reports over the years. The more interesting of these have generated research hypotheses, e.g. is tampon use associated with recurrent UTIs, or is childhood granuloma annulare associated with thyroid disease. More recently a report describing the effect of sumatriptan on trigeminal neuralgia has been accepted for publication. I have encouraged others to do the same by inviting them to share in this process. I am conscious that the initial hypothesis generation is only the initial step in the research ladder. I now need to develop links with other better resourced groups to interest them in designing and running clinical trials to answer these questions, which have originated from basic clinical observations. I would like UCC to play a major role in this. Unfortunately, the case report has a low status in the research hierarchy. However, it does not require a lot of resources; it promotes critical thinking and reflection by the practitioner and it does generate original clinical observation. I think this is important to help create a balance between "hands on clinical medicine" and "high tech medicine". I think the impact of these hypotheses on my discipline to-date has been minimal. However the interest is growing. I act as an associate editor for the Journal of Medical Case Reports. Disappointingly most of the reports published to date have not come from general practice. I would like to help change this, basically by leading by example.
