Kate Morton is a senior research assistant within Health Psychology at the University of Southampton. Her research interests include the delivery of healthcare support via digital interventions, and patients’ experiences of self-managing their health conditions.

I graduated from York University with a BSc in psychology in 2005, and worked for several years in a psychology research post before completing my MSc in Health Psychology at the University of Southampton in 2012. My MSc project investigated the predictors of intentions to engage in physical activity.

I now work as a senior research assistant with a specialist and diverse team on a project to investigate the integration of digital interventions into patient self-management support.

Research interests

My research interests include the delivery of healthcare support via digital interventions, and participants’ preferences for the delivery and format of such support.

I am completing my PhD on the experiences of patients and healthcare professionals using an online intervention to support self-management of blood pressure, and am working towards my Stage 2 Health Psychology qualification alongside.

Research project(s)


The DIPSS (Integrating Digital Interventions into Patient Self-Management Support) project has received funding of £2 million from the NIHR to examine patient digital self-management with healthcare professional support in primary care. Our aim is to develop digital behaviour change interventions for asthma and hypertension self-management, which will be examined in feasibility studies and full RCT (hypertension only). Issues surrounding the feasibility, acceptability, effectiveness and cost-effectiveness of digital intervention delivery will be explored with patients and healthcare professionals for each condition.
