Morwenna Rogers

Information Specialist

Kath Maguire

I have been working at PenCLAHRC since 2011 as an Information Specialist within the Evidence Synthesis team. My main role is to design and run literature searches for systematic reviews, covering all areas of health research but so far predominantly in the areas of childhood disability and mental health. In addition I also run training sessions on finding evidence at the PenCLAHRC Clinical Decision Making Workshops, and provide IS support for systematic review researchers when required.
