John completed his PhD in September 2018. It was funded by the National Institute for Health Research (NIHR) Collaborations for Leadership in Applied Health Research and Care West Midlands (CLAHRC WM).

Professional Background

With 10 years of experience in the Canadian & United States healthcare systems, John has progressed steadily through a variety of management roles in the public and private sectors including:

  • Business Development Manager and Research Analyst.

PhD Research - A New Vision for Patient Safety Learning

In John's current role, he is researching patient safety learning from serious incidents in the NHS. As a hospital Risk Manager, John was concerned that hospitals' were failing to learn from and prevent serious incidents from recurring. A review of the relevant academic literature also pointed to this implementation gap in learning from serious patient safety incidents (i.e. Nicolini, Waring & Mengis (2011) found that hospitals’ rarely learn from their failures). This led John to pursue his PhD in order to comprehensively study the learning processes followed by hospital staff in response to serious patient safety incidents, to develop a new model which will address the implementation gap.

John`s latest research interests are:

  • Patient Safety,
  • Professionals' response to adverse events,
  • Organisational Behaviour including Employee Voice and Affect.
