Dr Patrick Redmond is originally a Royal College of Surgeons in Ireland graduate who undertook GP vocational training with the Trinity College Dublin GP specialist training scheme. Subsequently, he completed a PhD as part of the Health Research Board PhD Scholars Programme in Health Services Research while working as a GP and lecturer at the Department of General Practice, RCSI, Dublin, Ireland. Prior to joining the Department, he was an Adjunct Senior Lecturer at the School of Primary, Aboriginal and Rural Health Care at the University of Western Australia.
He has been the recipient of a fellowship to undertake a Cochrane systematic review of interventions to improve medication reconciliation at transitions of care. His PhD thesis was a mixed methods approach examining prescribing at the primary secondary care interface. A component of this was the construction of a large scale national cohort study to recruit >40,000 patients, through a new electronic research network, to examine the issue of prescribing quality and continuity of chronic appropriate medications following discharge.
He has supported undergraduate medical students in attaining grants and supervising them in their placements. He is a reviewer for a number of journals as well as sitting on the editorial board for the Irish national GP journal – Forum. He also sits on the Quality in Practice committee which publishes and reviews guidelines on behalf of the Irish College of General Practitioners. He practices as a GP in Cambridge three days a week.
