Dr Wheeler’s research interests include studying different means of improving patient safety, focusing on drug administration. He uses high fidelity simulation to recreate emergency scenarios in which randomised studies can be undertaken examining doctors’ and nurses’ abilities to administer parenteral drugs correctly. Much of his research makes a strong case for clearer drug labelling and more widespread use of pre-filled syringes, especially generic drugs. In recognition that the market for pre-filled syringes containing generic drugs is in its infancy, he has developed a novel medical device for drawing up drugs from ampoules and labelling syringes safely.
