Getting to know you – meet Giles Barrington

Our “Getting to Know You” segment ensures PREDICT members are aware of new members, their interests and areas of expertise and where they are located.

This month we introduce Giles Barrington from Royal Hobart Hospital.

“The Royal Hobart Hospital is the major tertiary referral centre for Tasmania., the Emergency Department sees over 75000 presentations a year and services a diverse and complex patient population. I am a clinical nurse as well as the Research and Performance Improvement Nurse for the ED and work under the supervision of the Director of Emergency Research and the Tasmanian Emergency Research Group (TASER). My duties are to assist with the management, undertaking, and monitoring of research activities within our department. My current research focus is on factors influencing the prescription of opioid analgesics on discharge from the ED and interventions to reduce opioid divergence and harm post discharge. We have collaborated with PREDICT on several research projects I am excited to become a new member of this international research network”
