Dr Emma Teasdale is a Research Psychologist and Research Fellow in Primary Care within the Faculty of Medicine at the University of Southampton.

Her research involves conducting qualitative and mixed methods studies to understand people’s behaviour in response to health threats and chronic illness. She completed her PhD in 2015 on understanding behavioural responses to acute respiratory infections. Her work used qualitative research methods to explore public perceptions of non-pharmaceutical interventions that aim to reduce the transmission of acute respiratory infections in both pandemic and non-pandemic contexts.

Her research work since has involved conducting qualitative and mixed methods studies in chronic kidney disease, asthma, vitiligo, cellulitis and childhood eczema. She is currently working on the Eczema Care Online (ECO) Project, which aims to promote effective eczema self-care by improving individuals’ knowledge of eczema treatments and influencing attitudes, skills, and habits related to treatment use.

Research interests

I am interested in using qualitative research methods to understand people’s behaviour in response to health threats and chronic illness. I am also interested in developing and evaluating online behavioural interventions that promote health and well-being within a primary care context.

I am currently working on Eczema Care Online (ECO) Project, which aims to promote effective eczema self-care by improving individuals’ knowledge of eczema treatments and influencing attitudes, skills, and habits related to treatment use through the development and evaluation of online behavioural interventions or support tools.

My work on ECO includes conducting a systematic review of existing qualitative literature around eczema, carrying out interviews with parents and children about their experiences of eczema and helping to develop and test an online behavioural intervention for parents and carers of children with eczema.

CELLULITIS - Experiences of cellulitis and views about causation and prevention

Cellulitis is a painful bacterial infection of the skin and underlying tissues, usually as a result of breaks in the skin allowing bacteria to get through. This is a survey and interview study of people who have had cellulitis to find out more about their views around the causes of cellulitis and their experiences of preventing recurrent episodes.

ECO - Eczema Care Online

This programme of research aims to promote effective eczema self-care by improving individuals’ knowledge of eczema treatments and influencing attitudes, skills, and habits related to treatment use.
