Staff Profile

Kath Maguire

Research Fellow in Patient and Public Involvement

Kath Maguire

With a background caring for a child with life limiting conditions, I returned to education to study for a BA in Social and Political Sciences at Lucy Cavendish College, Cambridge and an MA in the Sociology and Philosophy of Culture at the University of Exeter. For a number of years I worked in the community sector, particularly focusing on community empowerment and learning. I have been involved in health research as a lay member of funding panels, as a lay reviewer and as part of the Public Involvement Group in PenCLAHRC. Through this involvement I developed a PhD research project that has been funded through PenCLAHRC: Public and Patient Involvement in Theory and in Practice. There are frequently calls for broader representation in PPI, but little research has been done to look at why some people become involved while others are put off or drop out. This study is intended to address this by looking at why people became involved in health service research, what keeps them interested and what drives them away.
