Research Profile

John Patrick Browne

Biography

Professor John Browne is the Director of the National Health Services Research Institute in Ireland. He is a health services researcher with a professional background in health outcome measurement. After completing his PhD at Trinity College Dublin he worked at the Health Services Research Unit of the London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine (LSHTM) from 1998 to 2008, where he oversaw the development of the NHS Patient Reported Outcome Measures (PROMs) programme and the acute care clinical guidelines programme for the National Institute for Clinical Excellence . He continues to hold an Honorary Professorship at LSHTM.He is currently exploring the value of PROMs as a tool for engineering quality improvement in a variety of clinical areas including breast cancer surgery and joint replacement. He is also the Principal Investigator on the Health Research Board funded 'SIREN' programme (Study of the Implementation of Reconfiguration on Urgent and Emergency Care Networks). http://www.ucc.ie/en/siren/. He has authored more than 100 peer reviewed journal articles and has co-authored a text book on social research methods (with Professor Judith Green) and the 2003 NHS Head Injury Guidelines.

Research Interests

Health services research

  • Comparing models of urgent and emergency care provision.
  • Quality of care achieved by healthcare providers, particularly with respect to surgical outcomes.
  • Comparison of case-mix and outcomes achieved by public versus privately funded hospital care models.
  • Impact of clinical guidelines on care practices and outcomes.

Outcomes research

  • The use of patient-reported outcome measures in the quality improvement field.
  • Psychometric development of new measures of health-related quality of life.
  • Calibration of outcome tools to improve interpretability (e.g. understanding minimally important differences).
  • Prognostic modelling of risk factors associated with negative outcomes after hospital care.

Secondary research

  • Systematic review and meta-analysis methods.
  • Development of national clinical guidelines.
  • Use of existing routine datasets
