Over the past 8 years he has worked on research projects to investigate: the prevalence, antecedents and interventions to tackle workplace bullying in the UK healthcare service, the role of professionalism, MBBS curriculum outcomes, Specialty doctors’ views of their training, and selection for medical graduates into the Foundation Programme.

Prior to moving to Monash, Paul was a Research Associate working on two grants funded by the UK Department of Health. The first project was investigating the Education Outcomes Framework, involving a realist synthesis to explore underlying processes linking education and training to patient outcomes. The second project was investigating the effectiveness of the system introduced by the Health and Care Professions Council (HCPC) which assures the continuing fitness to practise of its registrants, predominantly through Continuing Professional Development (CPD).
