Jessica will present a study she has led to improve diagnostic decision making in future primary care clinicians. This work, funded by the NIHR Cancer, Awareness Screening and Early Diagnosis PRU, originated in a study to understand how GPs make decisions to investigate lung cancer. It led to the co-creation of an online educational resource using simulated patients with common symptoms that might be cancer. The resource – eCREST – was co-created with GP registrars and has been tested in three medical schools. The talk will use this example to focus on: the range of opportunities in university settings for knowledge mobilisation; the tension between a REF focus on the impact of knowledge generation vs. genuine co-creation of resources with partners; and the tension between students’ and educators’ wish to provide a ‘right answer’ vs. the clinical reality of diagnostic uncertainty.
Dr Jessica Sheringham is a Senior Research Associate at UCL, a member of NIHR CLAHRC North Thames Research Partnership Team, and a Consultant in Public Health. She uses mixed methods to study determinants of implementation. Her current work includes studies on improving pathways to a cancer diagnosis, self-management in asthma, and maximising the value of linked data. She also works on professional education and training and has developed online courses in screening, evidence-based practice, and clinical reasoning for Masters and medical students; co-written Mastering Public Health, a leading textbook on public health; and is an Examiner for the Faculty of Public Health international membership exams.
