Speaker information

Alison Thomson, Queen Mary University of London. Alison Thomson is a lecturer in Patient & Public Involvement and Public Engagement in Science at Queen Mary University, London. Her background is in Design Interactions from the Royal College of Art. Much of Alison’s research involves understanding how healthcare users can contribute to co-designed health services and how health-care futures might be re-imagined through design research. Alison will present several projects that demonstrate some crucial aspects in designing with different groups of people – patients, clinicians, researchers and scientists.

Dr Chloe Grimmett,Development of supportive interventions in cancer populations Dr Chloe Grimmett, NIHR research fellow and Senior Research Fellow in the Macmillan Survivorship Research Group will discuss the development of a web-based decision aid to support young women with breast cancer making choices around genetic testing for BRCA1/2.

Dr Sue Duke,Modelling complex clinical interventions – a novel participatory approach Little is known about how best to model complex interventions delivered through clinical conversations. Associate Professor Dr Sue Duke will discuss the use of ethnodrama as a potential means of co-modelling contextually sensitive conversational interventions with clinical colleagues and provide a theoretical explanation for the space in which this process takes place.
