Gender-Affirming Care

I am implementing the first national patient-reported outcome measurement (PROM) program for gender-affirming care across the UK NHS. I am completing this as an NIHR Doctoral Research Fellow and PhD student at Oxford University. I am also a final-year MD student at McMaster University in Canada.

Main topics of interest:

Implementation-informed Service Design
Implementation Theory
Co-Processes (Co-Design, Co-Creation etc.)
Systems Change/Systems Analysis
Competencies for Implementation Support
Theory of Change
Evaluation of Implementation
Using CFIR to guide implementation

I am interested in implementing instruments which measure if we are actually improving the lives of patients from their perspective. These instruments are called Patient-Reported Outcome Measures (PROMs). Beyond determining effectiveness of healthcare interventions, PROMs also enhance communication, improve quality of life, health outcomes, and satisfaction with care. My PhD research aims to implement the first national measurement program for gender-affirming services in the world to measure patient-reported outcomes. This will ensure that the gender-affirming care provided is patient-centred and the voices of patients are used to drive care decisions rather than having the voices of patients go unheard. This will also allow us to compare between different types of treatments to see which ones provide patients the best outcomes.
