Jonathan Livingstone-Banks

Lecturer & Senior Researcher in Evidence-Based Healthcare, University of Oxford

I am lecturer & senior researcher in evidence-based healthcare at the University of Oxford, based in the Nuffield Department of Primary Care Health Sciences.

I specialise in using a set of methods called 'evidence synthesis', where I try to combine primary research on important questions in such a way that we get something greater than the sum of its parts. I do a lot of research into the best ways to help people quit smoking, and I also like to spend time thinking about what the best evidence is in healthcare, and how we can best get the answers to important clinical and policy questions.
