Research interests

I am a health services researcher with an interest in implementation science, exploring ways in which theoretically developed interventions are integrated into practice to maximise long-term continued use and effectiveness.

The origins of implementation science include operational research which is where my research career began. In 2000 I obtained my Ph.D. looking at the development and evaluation of an intelligent decision support system. From this my research interests progressed to look at e-Interventions in healthcare settings.  Recent research has cemented my interest in implementation.

My current focus is aiming to understand contextual factors around integration of interventions, and barriers and facilitators that impact on successful sustained implementation. To this end I am pursuing a number of projects looking both at contextual issues (different NHS settings, different international settings) and the potential for practical use for a new intervention sustainability framework which I co-developed. This framework uses multicriteria decision analysis (which I used in my Ph.D. research) for supporting intervention sustainability. I am also interested in Digital Health. To this end I am and have been involved in a number of projects developing/evaluating digital health interventions.
