Professor Gene Feder has been awarded an OBE in the Queen’s New Year Honours List for services to healthcare and victims of domestic abuse.

Committed to compassionate, effective and holistic health care, Gene has championed the use of randomised controlled trials to test improvements in general practice care of patients with heart and respiratory conditions, and robust methods to develop and implement clinical guidelines that make a difference to patients.  He has chaired four NICE guidelines and the World Health Organisation intimate partner and sexual violence guideline development group. 

Professor Feder has worked at the University of Bristol since 2008. He is Professor of Primary Care at the University’s Centre for Academic Primary Care and a practising GP at the Helios Medical Centre in Bristol. He replaces Professor Chris Salisbury as SPCR Board Member and CAPC Head of Department in February this year.

In 2012, Gene was funded by the School to conduct a pilot for an individually, randomised, parallel group controlled trial to determine if a psychological intervention delivered by domestic violence advocates is effective and cost effective. In addition, he conducted a longitudinal measurement of cortisol in association with mental health and experience of domestic violence and abuse: Cortisol Evaluation in Abuse Survivors.

The SPCR would like to congratulate Gene on this outstanding achievement. Read the full press release from the University of Bristol.
