Senior Research Fellow

Margaret Macaulay is a Senior Research Fellow within Health Sciences at the University of Southampton.

Incontinence remains a largely taboo and unsexy area of healthcare. I am privileged to work with an inspirational team committed to the development of resources for patients and healthcare professionals managing incontinence on a daily basis.

Margaret qualified as a registered nurse in 1984 and until 2000 worked as a urology nurse, community continence advisor and continence services manager. Since then she has been a continence specialist researcher at Medical Physics & Bio-engineering, UCL, and currently manages the continence research programme at the Continence Technology Research Group at the University of Southampton. 

Research interests

Margaret has had a key role in many NHS and charity-funded, UK and international studies to evaluate and develop key product designs for continence management. Her current particular areas of interest include:

  • The Continence Product Advisor – She has co-led the development of this international resource which is hosted by the International Continence Society.
  • Intermittent self-catheterisation research: she is the project manager for the Multicath Trial – a major multi-centre RCT to evaluate the impact of catheter re-use.
  • Resources for men – she managed the TrueNTH continence management programme, funded by Prostate Cancer UK / Movember, to develop resources for men managing post-prostatectomy incontinence. This included web, new product and service development modules.
