Dr James Fisher
James is a consultant geriatrician at Northumbria Healthcare NHS Foundation Trust, UK. His interests include delirium, movement disorders and medical education. James strongly believes that the quality of delirium care can be considered a marker of the quality of wider hospital care, and that this should be considered ‘core business’ for 21st century hospitals.
James has published work on the use of innovative teaching methods for delirium education, including simulation and e-learning. He has also published work examining undergraduate medical school curricula in relation to delirium and describing teaching strategies for education about delirium.
During his training in geriatric medicine James completed a Diploma of Clinical Education and an MD, studying the use of accelerometers in patients with Parkinson’s disease. James also co-founded the Association for Elderly Medicine Education (aeme.org.uk). You can follow him on Twitter here: @drjimbofish
