Research

Research Interests

  • Strong focus on health care work and clinical and non-clinical workers including decision-making, communication and organizational boundaries
  • Investigating how technologies (notably computer and web-based) are – or are not – brought into successful use in a range of different health care settings
  • Research on policy change, re-organisation and new ways of delivering healthcare - workforce configuration, new roles and service innovation
  • Key contributor to developing meta-ethnography (a novel method for integrating research findings) and new methods for qualitative evidence synthesis
  • Exploring the contribution of theory – notably normalisation process theory - to understanding innovation and implementation in health care

Primary research group:  Innovative and Essential Care

Research projects

Improving the quality of ambulance crew hand-overs

A collaboration with colleagues in local NHS Trusts to provide the first ethnographic study of communication and information transfer during ambulance journeys.

Knowledge exchange in healthcare commissioning

This project will examine three distinct models of commissioning expertise, namely private sector (i.e. external providers), Primary Care Trust (PCT) commissioning and GP consortia commissioning and. explore how commissioners access, assimilate, integrate and utilize different kinds of managerial and clinical knowledge in  the commissioning process.

Same technology, different settings

A multidisciplinary case study of computer decision support and workforce redesign. A unique contribution to the understanding of how health technologies are deployed in the NHS.

The HealthLines Study: expanding the role of NHS Direct in the management of long-term conditions

Exploring the potential of ‘telehealth’ (internet and the telephone) to improve care for people with long term conditions.

The work, workforce, technology and organisational implications of 111

Examining the everyday work and practice, the experience and skills of the workforce, the technologies brought into use, and organizational environment, required to deliver the national ‘111’ single point of access service.

Teaching Responsibilities

Successful integration of up to date research into postgraduate education for healthcare professionals and researchers

Supporting research excellence through highly evaluated teaching of social science and research methodology

Sustained contribution to the knowledge base for health education through publications used in education programmes across the world
