Staff Profile

Dr Helen Hambly

Postdoctoral Research Associate

Kath Maguire

I joined PenCRU, a childhood disability research unit within Child Health at the University of Exeter Medical School, in February 2017. Part of my role within PenCRU is to produce plain language Evidence Summaries on different treatments and interventions for disabled children.

I am also working on a project to support ward staff’s communication with disabled children in hospital and improve children’s experiences as inpatients. My research interests include qualitative methods, listening to children’s perspectives, communication in healthcare settings and psychosocial aspects of impairment and disability.
