Projects per year
I am a Senior Lecturer in Qualitative Health Science/ Senior Research Fellow, within the QuinteT Research group. The focus of our work is to support clinicians with recruitment to RCTs, using a range of qualitative methods, and I have a particular methodological interest in the application of Conversation Analysis (CA) to support RCT recruitment and information delivery.
I am currently involved in 5 RCTs, undertaking the lead Qualitative Research role on 3 of these.
Additionally, from 2014-2016 I worked on The Bristol Archive Project (also known as the One in a Million Study) a study about primary care consultations. An aim of the study was to create a shared resource of video-recorded primary care encounters plus linked (survey) data for re-use. We succesfully collected over 300 recordings of consultations, and these data are now available for other researchers to apply to access.
Prior to moving to the Bristol Medical School I worked in the School for Policy Studies. A focus of my work there was upon the implementation and application of the Mental Capacity Act (MCA). In my PhD I used Conversation Analysis and ethnographic approaches to explore how the MCA was being applied to everyday decision making with people with learning disabilties. I subsequently worked on several other funded studies related to aspects of the MCA, including Best Interests Decisions, the impact of the Deprivation of Liberty Safeguards (DOLS), the application of the MCA to the personalisation agenda (in particular Direct Payments) and IMCA provision. I also used CA methods as part of study exploring how the social care needs of men with Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy were met.
