Dawn leads the Evidence Synthesis Group within IHS, is a senior member of the Health Economics Group and Deputy Director of the NIHR Innovation Observatory. Her research interest in health technology assessment methodologies focuses on the areas of evidence synthesis (including systematic review and meta-analysis, network meta-analysis and decision modelling/economic evaluation), the use and reporting of methods of evidence synthesis techniques in health; and the role and usefulness of economic evaluation/decision modelling in decision making. She has a broader research interest in implementation and service delivery. She has undertaken research in a very wide variety of areas including hospital acquired infection, psoriatic arthritis, service delivery interventions, osteoporosis, frozen shoulder, epilepsy, child growth monitoring, enhanced recovery programmes and breastfeeding promotion.
She is a co-convenor of the Cochrane Campbell Economic Methods group and member of the Cochrane Comparing Multiple Interventions group. Prior to joining Newcastle University she led a team of health economists at the Centre for Reviews and Dissemination, University of York, leading on the NHS Economic Evaluation Database and the conducted appraisals of new and existing diagnostic and therapeutic interventions for the National Institute of Health and Care Excellence (NICE).
