Current projects

Associate Professor Lane's primary research interest is phenomenological analysis of human experience. He is commencing Australia's first Intensive Care Unit (ICU) follow-up clinic, developing knowledge and theory to optimise patient experience and management whilst they are in the ICU and beyond. His PhD thesis 'Saying Sorry: Doctors' experiences of open disclosure after medication error. A phenomenological study using simulation', explored and illuminated the clinical experiences and medical interns during the open disclosure process. It also explored the utility of high-fidelity simulation to develop critical refection and cognitive resilience.
