Lucy Moore is an experienced qualitative researcher with systematic review and project management experience. She is a research fellow in the Third Gap team where she completed her PhD in 2012 on the self-management of chronic illness for older patients with heart disease. Lucy has a specialist interest in patient self-management and clinician management of chronic illness from a sociological and interventional perspective. From 2012-2013 she worked at the University of Alberta, Canada, as a post-doctoral fellow on a systematic review of the mechanisms of heart failure self-care interventions http://www.nursing.ualberta.ca/en/staff/faculty/aclark.aspx 

Before coming to the University of Exeter Medical School she worked in the Royal College of Nursing Institute (RCNI), Oxford, on an ethnographic study of practice nurses, accountability and multidisciplinary decision-making. This involved extensive fieldwork and interviews with professionals in primary care. Throughout her nursing career she has worked, clinically and managerially, in surgical and medical specialties including cardiac care in Oxford, UK and Boston, USA. 

At Exeter, in the Institute of Health Research, she is currently working on a synthesis of person-centred care (PCC) with the University of Gothenburg Centre for Person-Centred Care (GPCC) www.gpcc.gu.se The aim of this study is to deepen our understanding of person-centred care (PCC) in the context of different GPCC projects and health care settings. This descriptive study, employing qualitative methods, will lead to the development of a framework and richer definition of PCC by identifying key interpretations and core concepts.

Following Lucy’s post-doctoral experience at the University of Alberta, Canada and her current work with the GPCC at the University of Gothenburg, she has established links with internationally recognized research teams.
