General Practitioner, Lecturer & HRB Health Services Research Scholar in RCSI
Patrick is undertaking a PhD as part of the HRB PhD Scholars Programme in Health Services Research while continuing to work as a GP in Dublin. He also lectures to the Senior Cycle undergraduate medical students within the Department of General Practice. He is originally an RCSI graduate and completed GP vocational training with the TCD/HSE GP training scheme.
Patrick has been awarded an HRB Cochrane Fellowship to undertake a systematic review entitled "Interventions to improve medication reconciliation across transitions of care". This systematic review will form an important component of Patrick’s broader thesis looking at medication management, specifically inappropriate prescribing and medicines reconciliation, at the primary-secondary care interface. Specific aims include developing and evaluating a primary care based electronic medication reconciliation intervention.
