Dr Debbie Kinsey

Postdoctoral Research Associate

 

Overview

I currently work in the ESMI Beetle team. The Beetle project is using a series of linked systematic reviews to understand the impact of multi-component interventions which aim to improve recovery and length of hospital stay for older adults following planned surgical procedures. Beetle has a particular focus on patient, carer, and staff experiences of these interventions, and on what are the most important aspects of the interventions.

Prior to joining the team, I completed my PhD on the impact of including carers in museum programmes for people with dementia, using qualitative realist methodology. I previously trained as a clinical psychologist, and have worked on a number of research projects related to healthcare, particularly with older adults.

My broader research interests include disability and chronic health conditions (particularly those acquired in adulthood), the arts and health, wellbeing, health and social care, and accessibility in its many forms.

I am the co-founder & current co-chair of the Disability Network - a peer support network for disabled staff and students at the University, which also aims to raise awareness and visibility of disability issues, and advocate for changes to improve our experience.
