Amy began her PhD in December 2014 and aims to develop a feasible, acceptable and evidence-based complex intervention to improve the coordination and experience of care for people with dementia and their families/ carers. By integrating various components of care including physical, psychological and social aspects, the intervention will aim to improve health outcomes and reduce unnecessary costs.
Amy will develop a theoretical and empirically based prototype based on a mixed methods review of existing literature. Through in-depth interviews, Amy will ascertain the views of a range of stakeholders on the design of the prototype intervention, the likely acceptability and utility of the different components, and the feasibility of its implementation. The final stage of the PhD will be the conduction of a feasibility study to test the acceptability and normalization potential of the complex intervention for people with dementia, their carers, health and social care professionals delivering the intervention, and providers and commissioners of integrated care. Prior to starting her PhD, Amy worked as an Associate Research Fellow within the Complex Interventions Research Group at the University of Exeter Medical School.
