Tribute to Professor. Robert L. Wears
It is with deepest sadness and shock that the CHILL team learn of the loss of Professor Bob Wears, an extraordinary scholar, admired clinician, and revered colleague.
Professor Wears was an international leader in patient safety, emergency medicine and resilient healthcare and his impact and influence in the field of health research was beyond measure.
CHILL PhD students, Charlotte Overton and Kate Kirk, had the privilege of gaining first hand insight into his expertise, whilst visiting him in Jacksonville as part of their PhD studies. Before, during and also following their visit, Bob was immensely generous with his time, vast knowledge and wisdom.
Having the opportunity to share their research with him, observe him in his clinical work, and learn from his insights was an honour. Inspiring beyond words, the meeting and visit has been greatly influential to their own research, and will continue to incite their thinking.
Professor Bob Wears will be deeply missed by us all at CHILL. Our thoughts and deepest condolences are with his family, and all others fortunate enough to be close to him.

Improvement in a Changing Health Landscape.
CHILL’s Annual Event will this year focus on Improvement.
CHILL (and other) researchers will be reporting on a variety of improvement projects in healthcare, drawn from across all parts of health services. We believe that the real-world lessons to be drawn from these projects will be of interest to a wide range of NHS professionals and managers.

Further information will be available in due course.
