Dr. Glenn Jones is a Clinical Scholar, Radiation Oncologist, Epidemiologist, and Biostatistician.  During his three-decade career he divided his time equally between clinical practice and academic activities. 

Dr. Jones has extensive experience in radiation medicine, medical physics, image-anatomy-based planning, and psychosocial oncology.  He has managed nine thousand patients.  He has been a leader, researcher and innovator in: quality assurance; system redesign and end-2-end analytics; peer-to-peer review; and multidisciplinary case conferencing.  Dr. Jones practiced in Canada 1989-2015, and then in the Eastern Caribbean in 2015-2019. He invented Strategic Value (2012) for clinical practice development and evolution, and INSPIRES (2009) for direct whole-patient care. To advance a culture of safety and value in survivorship of cancer and chronic diseases, Dr. Jones is becoming an Integrative Nutrition Heath Coach and teacher.   

Dr. Jones has held continual university and teaching appointments during his medical career, and is an accomplished researcher and methodologist in both public and clinical epidemiology.  He has publications in major journals such as Radiotherapy & Oncology and the International Journal of Radiation Oncology, Biology and Physics, as well as in Cancer,  Cancer Causes & Control, Journal Supportive Care in Cancer, Lancet, Science and Medical Education.  Since 2002, he has worked with the International Atomic Energy Agency of the United Nations as Chief Scientific Officer (methods, data handling and statistics) for six international multicentre randomized trials in cancer control.  Other studies have involved teams in pathology, nursing, pharmacy, dermatology, cancer screening, supportive care, emotions and distress, and psychosocial oncology.  Dr. Jones provides voluntary research assistance to medical trainees and advocates in Haiti, St. Lucia, Anguilla and the Bahamas. 

Dr. Jones has a passion for proving, improving and transforming healthcare through integrative end-2-end approaches to patient safety and service value.  He invented Strategic Value (2012) to train for and to manage clinical practice--embracing four core practice values of centering, coordinating, equipping and evolving.
