I am a qualitative researcher and sociologist of health and illness with an interest in the ways in which evidence based treatments and management strategies are used - or not - in patients' everyday lives. My work aims to promote good communication and to enable health professionals in supporting patients more effectively. Projects with other members of the PenCLAHRC Third Gap team include a study of doctors’ understandings of individualised treatments, a concept mapping of terms associated with individualisation, and a study with members of PenPIG about patient involvement in the licensing of new drugs. I lead the Patient and Public Involvement team. I am Principal Investigator for the Diabetes Intervention Agenda Trial (DIAT), which is investigating a question proposed by a patient and also by a Diabetes Specialist Nurse.
