Research interests

Claire is heavily involved in simulation training and coordinated a successful bid (over £900,000) for much of the simulation training equipment we use at our Simulation and Interactive Learning Centre (SaIL).

Claire speaks nationally and internationally about scoliosis and educational subjects. She runs a seminar at the Association of Anaesthetists for consultants on corrective scoliosis surgery and has also spoken at the Institute of Neurology on this subject.

Claire presents regularly at audit meetings, her most recent audit was in changing pre-assessment of children with low blood counts. They can be treated at home by their GP so that they do not need a blood transfusion after their operation.
