Overview

I currently work within the Exeter HS&DR Evidence Synthesis Centre within the University of Exeter Medical School. We have just completed a rapid systematic review exploring experiences of the Nearest Relative provisions of the Mental Health Act. We are currently working on a large systematic review, examining the effectiveness of organisational interventions aiming to manage the length of hospital stay for older adults admitted for planned procedures.

Qualifications

2011: Doctorate in Clinical Psychology (University of Hull)
2008: Postgraduate Certificate in Mental Health (University of York)
2007: BSc Psychology (University of York)

Career

I trained as a clinical psychologist and have previously worked within Community Teams for Adults with Learning Disabilities. My thesis, carried out as part of my clinical psychology training, focused on the experience of recovery for people receiving methadone maintenance treatment.

I have previously worked on a PenCLAHRC affiliated Systematic Literature Review within the Evidence Synthesis Team, aimed at exploring the effectiveness of interventions aimed at improving the mental health of young people with long-term physical conditions. This review had three parts; a quantitative part to review the effectiveness of the interventions and their cost-effectiveness, a qualitative part to review the experiences of young people, their parents and those administering the interventions and an over-arching synthesis of the information gathered though parts 1 and 2. This review took place over 15 months
starting in January 16. I really enjoyed working alongside medical and mental health experts within the field and the young people with lived experience of LTC.

In 2015 I worked on a randomized control trial at Plymouth University to explore the effects of debt counselling on the recovery of people with money worries who were also living with depression.

Research interests

I have an ongoing interest in research aiming to improve mental health in vulnerable populations and enhance coordination between services to support individuals with multiple and complex needs.

Within the Exeter HS&DR Evidence Synthesis Centre I support the identification of research questions and development of research protocols for systematic reviews aiming to improve the organisation and delivery of health services within the UK. My work involves the delivery of all stages of these systematic reviews, from application of screening criteria, quality appraisal, synthesis of results and write up of reports for publication.

I have particular expertise in conducting both primary and secondary qualitative research.

My thesis focused on the experiences of recovery of individuals receiving methadone maintentance treatment, I gained experience in conducting individual interviews and analysing the content using Interpretative Phenomenological Analysis.

In my previous role as a systematic reviewer within the PenCLAHRC team, I led a systematic review aimed at exploring the experiences of young people, their parents and intervention deliverers of interventions aiming to improve the mental wellbeing of young people with long-term physical conditions. This work involved the use of a meta-ethnography approach to synthesise qualitative evidence.

As part of my work with the Exeter HS&DR Evidence Synthesis Centre, I led a rapid review of qualitative evidence associated with people's experiences of the Nearest Relative provision of the MHA. I was responsible for developing a novel methodology drawing upon a framework synthesis approach as part of this piece of work.

Research projects

3 Systematic Reviews within the Evidence Synthesis team examining:

1)  The effectiveness and cost-effectiveness of interventions targeting mental health for children and young people with LTCs and symptoms of mental distress.

2)  The effects of such interventions on other key aspects of social and family functioning.

3) The factors that may enhance, or hinder, the effectiveness of the above interventions and / or the successful implementation of interventions
