7 Leadership, organisational skills and team work

7.1 Co-founder of international Cochrane Collaboration and Founder of the Cochrane EPOC group
Following my 1991 Lancet series on medical knowledge calling for an international activity to assemble and update evidence, I worked with Brian Haynes & Iain Chalmers to organise the June 1992 meeting in McMaster at which the international Cochrane Collaboration was founded. I minuted this meeting and followed up actions with participants, passing responsibility on to them. In 1994 at Iain Chalmers’ request I identified 350 people world wide interested in evidence about the implementation of practice guidelines. We then developed this group by mailing 5 newsletters and organising meetings (in London, Washington, Hamilton and Brussels) into the Cochrane Collaboration on Behaviour Change, known now as the Cochrane Effective Practice and Organisation of Care (EPOC) review group.

7.2 Team work and problem solving
Since health informatics is an inherently multi disciplinary area, throughout my career I have worked closely with people from many disciplines, ranging from ethnographers to psychologists, linguists and computer scientists, and enjoy group work and problem solving of all kinds.

I was an active member of the 8-strong Senior Management Team of the National Institute of Clinical Excellence 2003-2005 during a period of expansion then a merger with the Health Development Agency that led to redundancies. This was an intensive and sometimes stressful experience for us all and required a close degree of trust and collaboration with senior members of the Institute. The problems to be solved ranged from strategic to scientific, management and financial issues and included planning a £30M annual budget, adverse media coverage and serious allegations relating to a senior member of NICE staff.

7.3 Participation in professional societies and organisation of international conferences
European Association for Artificial Intelligence in Medicine, AIME: Chair of the AIME board, 1991-1996. Member of programme committee and tutorial chair, biennial AIME conferences 1989, 1991, 1993, 1995.

British Medical Informatics Society: member of executive committee 1989-92, treasurer 1992-95 and vice chair 1995-2000. I organised 5 international BMIS workshops1989-1997

Advances in Clinical Knowledge Management series: I developed the programme and managed the organisation of these 1-day workshops during the period 1997-2003 with 5 London meetings and one in Amsterdam.

Main organiser and facilitator of international workshops on various topics for ICRF 1994 and 1997; for BMJ Publishing 2001; for AMC Amsterdam 2002, for NICE 2004.
