I have a BA in Sociology, a PhD in Health Studies from the University of York and a PgCert in Learning and Teaching. I previously coordinated an NHS Research Network for Older People´s Mental Health and came to ScHARR from the Bradford Dementia Group (University of Bradford) in January 2009.
I am a health services researcher with an interest in qualitative, quantitative and mixed-methods, and complex programme evaluation (including Realist and Developmental Evaluation). I was the Lead Evaluator for the CLAHRC-South Yorkshire programme and am leading the evaluation of new technologies in the combined Yorkshire and Humber CLAHRC. I also have a diverse ongoing programme of research, development, evaluation and service redesign in the use of technology for healthcare, including automated data collection, electronic care records and online dashboard development. I also have an interest in using Patient Reported Experience Measures (PREMS) for service improvement, and carry out qualitative data analysis for the National Audit for Intermediate Care.
As the Health Services Research Section representative for Innovation and Knowledge Transfer I am active in consultancy work. I am also a member of the Research Ethics Committee in ScHARR.
I am experienced in the qualitative analysis of audio/visual data and have been involved in a number of studies using Conversation Analysis methods.
I teach Post Graduate Masters and Undergraduate Medical Students, and supervise PhD and DMedSci students in a range of subjects. I am Module Lead for Complex Evaluation Methods (Masters in Clinical Research), and convene a short course (EPTOCI) Evaluating Programmes, Technology and other Complex Interventions.
