Staff Profile

Dr Dapo Ogunbayo

Research Associate

Background

Introduction

My background is in Pharmacy (B.Pharm.) and Public Health (MPH). I completed my PhD in 2015 where I used a mixed-methods design to explore community pharmacy’s contribution to self-care support of multiple long-term conditions. During and shortly after my PhD, I worked at the Centre for Pharmacy Postgraduate Education (CPPE) at the University of Manchester as a Research Associate designing, developing and reviewing CPD resources for pharmacy professionals in England.

I started working at Newcastle University in January 2016 as a Research Associate on a Newcastle Gateshead CCG-funded project aimed at improving self-management planning of COPD between health practitioners and patients with COPD.  I am currently involved in research work with health practitioners and COPD patients to identify barriers and enablers to self-management planning, which will help inform a prototype intervention for self-management of COPD in primary care.  I am also working on a qualitative synthesis of the COPD self-management literature.

Research Interests

My broad research interests are in primary care and public health research with a focus on the contributions of pharmacy within the wider, multidisciplinary public health and primary care team.  I am particularly interested in the concept of self-care/self-management support in relation to the management of multiple long-term conditions and interactions between people with LTCs, pharmacy professionals and other healthcare professionals, working together to improve the effectiveness and cost-effectiveness of health and social care services.
