About me and my blog

This is a personal blog by a Rheumatologist who works in Northern Ireland. I decided to use my own name for the blog as I didn’t want to be restricted by links to any particular organisation. I hope that this blog will be of interest to people with arthritis, ankylosing spondylitis and other ‘rheumatological’ conditions. Some of my articles are aimed more towards medical students or doctors

My Interests:

Outcome measures in Rheumatology
Use of sensors to measure mobility
Health Professional Education
Patient Education
Technology relevant to medicine
Ultrasound
Promoting Patient Safety issues

My details:
Dr Philip Gardiner MD FRCP FRCPI GMC No. 3055883,
Consultant Rheumatologist, Altnagelvin hospital, Londonderry N. Ireland
