Dr Sam Howard of 2012 cohort

Sam’s novel CDT research focused on investigating the attitudes of both patients and healthcare providers towards new electronic monitoring devices (EMDs) for Asthma. EMDs record the exact date and time whenever an inhaler is used, allowing for a precise dataset of a patient’s medication taking behaviour.
