Key Research Interests
- Rehabilitation in Parkinson’s disease
- The management of chronic conditions in ageing
- Systematic reviews
I conduct research to investigate the skills needed by healthcare professionals and patients to effectively manage long term conditions in adults. I have an interest in medication adherence, self medication in hospital, physical health checklists for people with serious mental illnesses and in developing assessment scales that help measure issues identified as important by people with long term conditions e.g. communication participation.
I am experienced in the use of the following research methods: systematic reviews of quantitative, qualitative, and mixed methods research; parallel and cluster randomised controlled trials; concept mapping; phenomenological interviews; and Delphi, online, and postal surveys.
