As an Applied Health Researcher, my research aims to tackle key issues facing healthcare services for people living with long-term and life-limiting conditions. My research has a strong patient focus and often includes qualitative research to understand patients' experiences of illness and healthcare services. I have expertise in the development and validation of Patient Reported Outcome Measures (PROMs) and experience of implementing PROMs into routine clinical practice as well as selecting appropiriate PROMs and patient-centred measures for clinical research.
I work closely with a broad range of health professionals who wish to improve patient care through evidence-based practice. My main research areas are currently: supporting patients living with advanced cancer (chronic cancer and palliative care); and intervention development for pelvic organ prolapse.
