Overview

I am a Postdoctoral Research Fellow on the NIHR South West Peninsula Applied Research Collaboration (PenARC) Child Health and Maternity Programme. The programme is a three year programme of research which aims to find effective ways to implement evidence-based interventions to improve children’s and maternity services widely across England by supporting four implementation studies. The research will engage with a wide range of voices from communities, children and young people and their families, and women using maternity services, reflecting the needs and priorities of the public, professionals and healthcare organisations to identify key areas where evidence can help to improve public health and services in health and social care.

Previous to this role I have worked on a number of other projects within the Medical School;

Postdoctoral Research Fellow on the Improving Continence for Children and Young People with Neurodisability (ICoN) project. The aim of the project was to summarise the available evidence for interventions relating to improving continence for children and young people with neurodisability. The study used a survey to investigate current NHS practice, and conducted a systematic review of the effectiveness, cost-effectiveness and contextual factors that modify implementation of interventions.

Associate Research Fellow and PhD student on the Children and adolescents with ADHD in transition between children’s services and adult services (CATCh-uS) study. The project focused on what happens to young people with Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD) when they are too old to stay within children’s services.

I have also worked as a Coordinator on the Healthy Lifestyles Programme (HeLP) and an Associate Research Fellow on the Helping Children Achieve (HCA) study.
