Staff Profile

Dr Jo Day

Research Fellow

Kath Maguire

I am a registered psychologist and qualitative researcher with project management experience. I joined PenCLAHRC in 2012 and currently work as a research fellow on two projects.
 

  • The Care Home Implementation and Knowledge Mobilisation (CHIK-P) which aims to develop our understanding of how to implement best practice and share knowledge in residential care settings with the aim of improving the health and social care of residents.
  • Analysing Implementation in Acute Stroke and Patient Initiated Clinics (ASPIC) where we seek to gain insights into the implementation processes of two South West Academic Health Science Network and PenCLAHRC supported intervention and improvement work.
Prior to this I worked on the internal evaluation of the pilot PenCLAHRC programme. This was a formative realist evaluation with a participatory approach to examine how closer collaboration between researchers and clinicians promoted research knowledge translation.
 
I am a Health and Care Professions Council Registered Forensic Psychologist, and a Chartered Psychologist and Associate Fellow of the British Psychological Society. I previously worked for the Ministry of Justice with responsibilities that included the development, evaluation and audit of evidence-based interventions for people with criminal convictions within prison and probation. My doctoral research was a narrative life-story study exploring adults’ experience of transforming a criminal lifestyle and the role of identity, embodiment and physical activity within a strengths-based framework.
