Research interests

Caroline King is Research Fellow in the Department of Nursing & Community Health, where she researches with the Safeguarding Health through Infection Prevention (SHIP) Research Group.  Caroline is currently working on a programme of research which explores antimicrobial resistance (AMR) using social science perspectives.   Working with SHIP team members, she is examining barriers and enablers to screening for AMR organisms in hospitals and is involved in a programme of work which is determining behavioural insights into AMR.


She holds a BSc (Hons) Nursing, MSc Health Promotion and PhD Population Health Sciences. 


Caroline’s PhD, funded by an Economic & Social Research Council CASE studentship, was awarded by University of Edinburgh in 2013.  Based with the Centre for Families and Relationships (CRFR) and working with an NHS partner, Caroline used qualitative methods to explore the impact of changes to child health policy on children’s health and well-being. 


Since completing her PhD, Caroline has also worked on a range of other applied health research studies which have evaluated e-health interventions within Neonatal Care;  explored self-harm within the context of General Practice; and a study of services for young people with disabilities.
