My research focuses on the interplay of social, psychological and organisational factors that occur when evidence-informed changes in policy and practice are implemented in health services. Others refer to this field of research as knowledge transfer or knowledge mobilisation. Working closely with stakeholders, I use theory-driven methods to conduct research that addresses two stages of the MRC Complex Interventions Framework: 1. Development - Identifying and building the implementation and impact theories that underpin the ways in which complex interventions are proposed to work. 2. Evaluation - Identifying and refining understanding of implementation mechanisms that are transferable across fields of practice. My research harnesses scientific rigour and the practical learning of stakeholders to improve health outcomes and research impact. My role within PenCLAHRC includes teaching, facilitation and methodological development so that practitioners', service users', decision-makers', and researchers' capacity to conduct Implementation Science is increased.
