Dr Rebecca Band is Research Fellow within Psychology at the University of Southampton.

I completed my PhD examining the role of interpersonal factors on patient symptom maintenance in CFS/ME in 2013, at the University of Manchester. Subsequently, I worked on a project developing patient and GP resources for diagnosing and managing CFS/ME in primary care before joining the University of Southampton as the DIPSS (Integrating Digital Interventions into Patient Self-Management Support) project co-ordinator.

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.
