Research interests

With >20 years of experience as a paediatrician (with special interest in asthma and allergy) and as a clinical teacher involved in workplace medical education, I am fascinated with how people learn. We teach and learn each day, all day, but most of this teaching and learning is implicit. I aim to unveil and unravel this every-day teaching and learning, to better understand it, and to improve it. My research interests focus on communication in teaching and learning, both with junior doctors and in each clinical encounter between doctor and patient; on the provision and effects of constructive feedback; on shared decision making and how this impacts people's motivation to follow recommendations; and on the impact of the learning environment on learning.
