Delivering care, self-care and patient outcomes

This programme of research has led on internationally renowned large-scale evaluations of innovative care delivery, along with the development of patient focused outcome measures.

Cutting edge research led by Sue Latter to evaluate non medical prescribing has significantly influenced national and international policy. We have also conducted evaluations of nurse led interventions in order to improve management of pain medicines for patients nearing the end of their life.

Our large scale critical evaluations of the outcomes of self management support interventions, led by Anne Rogers, have had impact at policy level both in the UK and internationally. In addition, our ongoing work exploring the quality and experiences of care by older people aims to improve experiences of hospital care and help prevent unnecessary admissions.

Finally, our work on ‘Patient Reported Outcome Measures' and ‘Quality of Life Measures', led by Ann Bowling, underpins this work by ensuring the effectiveness of interventions are measured by robust patient-centred feedback.
