NIHR Academic Clinical Fellow in Paediatrics
Imperial College London/London Deanery
Dr Logan Manikam is a first year paediatric specialty trainee based at Barnet & Chase Farm Hospitals NHS Trust. He is also currently an ACF (Academic Clinical Fellow) based at Imperial College London undertaking research in paediatric allergy and respiratory medicine. His research interests in addition to these include a keen interest in public health, provision and delivery of effective interventions via evidence synthesis and supporting innovation in medical education.
He works in collaboration with Professor Monica Lakhanpaul (Institute of Child Health, UCL), an existing NICE Fellow, on numerous projects including the multifaceted multidisciplinary HSR NIHR funded Management and Interventions in Asthma study (MIA) in South Asians and the Department of Health-commissioned Spotting the Sick Child educational tool. He has published in peer-reviewed journals including commissioned publications and has presented both nationally and internationally.
As a NICE Scholar, Dr Manikam will conduct a national survey of junior doctors aimed to quantify the knowledge of junior doctors on NICE clinical practice guidelines (CPGs) and seek an understanding of their attitudes and the influence of their work environment and teaching on NICE CPGs. This will provide some insight into the attitudinal barriers and facilitators to implementing evidence-based practice (EBP) and following of NICE CPGs amongst junior doctors. Additionally, this will further guide NICE's effort in improving EBP teaching amongst junior doctors and development of its undergraduate educational tools in line with NICE's education strategy.
