Dr. McCulloch is a Professor of Surgery at the University of Oxford. His early research was on cancer metastasis and gastrectomy technique. However, he has since become interested in patient safety and founded the QRSTU research group which is dedicated to studies of quality and safety interventions in surgery. His current work is funded by a Programme Grant from the NIHR, and involves a synthesis of aspects of the LEAN and CRM interventions to optimize safety performance in surgery.
Dr. McCulloch has advised and participated in the development of the NHS Institute programme “the productive operating theatre” and the Health Foundation sponsored project on Safer Theatre Teams. Peter is actively involved in assisting the Clinical Human Factors Group in their work to improve surgical safety in the UK.
