Mark Murphy

Dr Mark Murphy is a general practitioner in Co. Dublin. His primary interest is how general practitioners share complex clinical decisions and evidenced based principles with patients. He is a Lecturer in General Practice in the Royal College of Surgeons, Ireland, teaching Evidenced Based Medicine to medical students. He is performing a structured PhD in Health Services Research through the SPHeRE Programme, in the HRB Centre for Primary Care Research. Mark’s PhD will address variation of chronic disease management in Irish primary care, specifically addressing clinical inertia in type 2 diabetes management, through the targeting of poorly controlled patients. He has performed a systematic review of interventions targeting patients with poorly controlled T2DM in primary care. He has looked at geographical variation of anti-diabetic agents in Ireland. He has also developed a decision support intervention through the MRC Framework for Complex Interventions to help GPs manage poorly controlled T2DM and intensify medications, where appropriate. This will be tested through a cluster randomized controlled trial. Mark is also the current Chair of Communications with the Irish College of General Practitioners.

As part of Mark’s talk, he will outline how frontline general practitioners source evidence based material and how they practically share these decisions with their patients.
