I am a Chartered Psychologist (CPsychol) whose research focuses on improving the quality of care that patients receive. My primary research interests are understanding the role that patients can play in their own healthcare (which also encompasses how patients interact with, come to understand and ultimately experience healthcare), and the disposition of care as it spans organisational and cultural boundaries, including health and social care. I am currently a Research Associate within the Decision Making and Organisation of Care (DMOC) research theme in the Institute of Health & Society, and have over £500k of research funding, half of which as principal investigator.
Current project topics
- Patient safety during transition from hospital to care home
- Electronic alerts for Acute Kidney Injury
- Development of a novel device for diagnosing peripheral arterial disease
- Safety incident reports during care transitions
- Care homes frequently calling ambulance services
- Enabling inclusion of BME communities in patient safety research
Previous project topics
- Patient reporting of safety experiences following discharge from hospital
- Individual frequent users of ambulance services
- Evaluation of NHS111 service improvement projects
- Understanding the 'black box' of shared decision making
- Transition following involuntary relocation of care home residents
- Interprofessional learning during medication safety seminars
- Patient involvement in safety during care transitions (PhD research)
If you would like to discuss any past or present research topics, please get in touch. I am always interested in developing new collaborations and exploring new avenues for my research, including student supervision.
I currently contribute to the Healthcare Quality (MSc) module, leading a session on patient safety. Prior to joining Newcastle University I was a module leader for MSc modules focusing on safety, risk and quality improvement. I am a member of the graduate school and open to supervising students on a wide range of topics related to my areas of expertise.
