Mike Smith is a Defence Professor of General Practise and Primary Care with a doctorate in engineering-led research into knowledge-based AI systems for modelling and simulation.
Dr Smith has developed extensive experience and understanding of the delivery of general practice and primary care in remote, austere and often hostile environments while providing close medical support to light role combat troops. His work has involved developing clinical protocols and governance for delivering prolonged care for critically ill or injured casualties. This has included the use of TXA, blood and blood products in remote unsupported combat environments. Current research streams include developing evidence-based guidelines for the prolonged care of critically ill personnel exploiting innovations in big data and sensor technologies.
