About Me

Dr. Damian Roland is an experienced Paediatric Emergency Medicine clinician who is passionate about improving the care of the ill and injured child. He has considerable experience in the development of educational resources and their evaluation, especially e-health technologies which have applicability in specialties outside of paediatrics.

As a National Health Service (NHS) sponsored Paediatric Emergency Medicine Academic he is developing a research portfolio which will not only build on the work undertaken as part of his National Institute Health Research (NIHR) Doctoral Research Fellowship but develop initiatives from grants obtained from the East Midlands Health Innovation and Education Cluster (HIEC) and the College of Emergency Medicine.

His research skills are supported by considerable leadership experience developed as an inaugural NICE (National Institute for Clinical Excellence) Shared Learning award Scholar, past member of the Academy of Medical Royal Colleges Council and currently as a member of the NHS England’s Children and Young Persons Health Outcomes Forum.

He is aiming to developing an expertise in the creation and evaluation of interventions which improve the recognition of ill and injured children in emergency and acute care settings. Previously he has developed the Paediatric Observation Priority Score (POPS), now available as an app, which is currently undergoing validation via an East Midlands HIEC and College of Emergency Medicine grant. POPS has shortlisted for two healthcare technology awards and a patient safety award. He was also part of the management team that delivered “Spotting the Sick Child”, a patient safety award winning educational website and has won two NICE Shared Learning awards (2011 and 2014).

He is regularly asked to present at National and International Conferences and has been invited to talk at the European Academy of Paediatric Societies 2014 meeting (October, Barcelona) and the Rapid Responses Conferences 2015 meeting (May, Amsterdam)
