Health Psychology

I am a Research Fellow with a particular interest in and experience of health psychology, intervention development and implementation, especially in terms of self-management strategies, social networks and social support in relation to the psychosocial side of living with a long term condition such as diabetes or Parkinson's Disease.

Main topics of interest:

Implementation-informed Service Design
Implementation Theory
Sustainment
Adoption/De-adoption/De-implementation
Co-Processes (Co-Design, Co-Creation etc.)
Theory of Change
Evaluation of Implementation

I have been studying and researching from the perspective of Implementation Science and Health Psychology, especially in terms of understanding and supporting self-management strategies, and the role of social networks and social support in relation to living with a long-term condition such as diabetes or Parkinson's, or supporting people to taper off of anti-depressants. This work is largely in terms of intervention development in collaboration with people living with diabetes, Parkinson's or using anti-depressants, and testing the value, impact and feasibility of developed interventions. I am particularly interested in the development and implementation of interventions to support sustainable behaviour change and/or self-management and any initiative which considers the person as a whole rather than simply a biomedical approach to health.
