PPD is one of the 4 themes within the Sydney Medical Program, and the curriculum assist students in developing ethical behaviour, professionalism and critical reflection. He is responsible for all aspects of the PPD curriculum development including, lecture series and delivery, tutorial and practical sessions, assessment and remediation. He also teaches and examines students in all stages of the SMP both at central faculty and Nepean Clinical School, where he has been awarded teacher of the year in 2006, 2007, 2010, 2011, 2012 and 2013

Current projects

Dr Lane’s primary research interest is phenomenological analysis of human experience. He is commencing Australia’s first Intensive Care Unit (ICU) follow-up clinic, allowing patients who have experienced time in the ICU to make sense of their experiences, developing knowledge and theory to optimise patient experience and management whilst they are in the ICU and beyond. His PhD thesis (currently under submission) is titled ‘Saying Sorry: Doctor’s experiences of open disclosure after medication error. A phenomenological study using simulation’ analysed the experiences of medical interns speaking to patients and families after they had suffered harm due to a medication error whilst in hospital. His thesis also explored the utility of medical simulation to provide an educational experience for final year medical students, and analysed how this educational experience affected the cognition and reflection of the medical students as they graduated from Medical School
