Professor Frances Mair is the Norie Miller Professor of General Practice and Head of General Practice and Primary Care for the Institute of Health and Wellbeing at the University of Glasgow.   She has published >230 peer reviewed articles and undertakes mixed methods research focusing on optimising the care of people with chronic illness and multiple chronic health conditions (multimorbidity).  Her work takes into account the wider socioeconomic environment and social contexts in which people live and the importance of understanding implementation issues to help bridge the translational gap between research and clinical practice.   She leads an extensive programme of chronic illness, multimorbidity and digital health research that promotes a move to person centred care, promoting the concept of “Minimally Disruptive Medicine (MDM)”  which has gained traction internationally, following a paper of that title , which she co-wrote and published in the British Medical Journal, that argued for the necessity of providing medicine that is minimally disruptive for patients.
