About Me

I am an Emeritus Professor of Healthcare Mathematics & Numeracy at USW and Founding Director, President of Translational Research & CRDO of Authentic World Ltd. My PhD and post-doctoral research underpins the design of safeMedicate, a virtual web-based drug dosage calculation education environment that informs the curricula of circa 80% of U.K. nurse education programmes and the competence development of nursing students and registered practitioners in 12 countries across five continents. To date this international programme of translational research has been entered for two successive RAE and one REF research submissions, and with over 4.65 million safeMedicate assessments having been undertaken across the globe, this research has made a major international impact upon advancing competence in this patient safety critical domain of healthcare practice.
