Current research

Geraldine recently Co-Led the NIHR SPCR funded OPEN project which informed the development of four E-learning for health sessions and is content author of one on delayed antibiotic prescribing. She continues to examine the data collected (see here for a link to the Health Education England training for prescribers developed as part of the OPEN study: E-Learning for Health Antimicrobial Stewardship Out of Hours: https://www.e-lfh.org.uk/programmes/antimicrobial-stewardship-ams-out-of-hours/).

 

She is currently co-lead on the Q-DaPS feasibility study with Prof. F Stevenson which will seek to develop a Trustworthy Research Environment for qualitative reesarchers to deposit their data which will then be made available to other researchers to conduct secondary analyses. 

She works with Prof. T Kendrick on his PROMDEP and REDUCE studies which seek to optimise the identification and mangement of depression in primary care. She also works with Assoc Prof. F Bishop and Prof. H Everit on the TIPs 2 study, which seeks to trial a communication training programme to enhance the communication of empathy and optimism in primary care consultations.
