Research interests

Lisa Kidd is a Professor in Nursing within the School of Health and Life Sciences, Glasgow Caledonian University.  Lisa’s research focusses on life after stroke, particularly on the implementation of supported self-management in stroke care. Current projects include a Stroke Association-funded realist evaluation study to understand how supported self-management works, for whom and why in the context of community rehabilitation services across Scotland (see here).  Lisa is also a co-investigator on other studies, including a CSO-funded study to develop and test a measure of treatment burden in stroke (see here), an NIHR-funded research to develop and test a digital peer-supported and peer-led self-management programme for supporting mental and sexual wellbeing for people with acquired brain injury, and an NIHR-funded study to explore the management and self-management of diabetes in people with cancer (see here).

Current doctoral supervision includes a range of projects related to supporting self-management in stroke survivors with visual impairment, understanding how stroke survivors embed self-management into their day to day lives and what works, for whom and why in meeting rehabilitation needs, nurses’ roles in assessing and managing post-stroke cognitive impairment, and the provision of community-based stroke care in different cultures and countries.

Lisa has held several Institution-wide and external leadership roles, including the incoming Chair of the UK Stroke Forum.  Lisa is a committee member of the Scottish Stroke Nurse Forum, a founding member of the European Life After Stroke Forum, a member of the Scottish Government’s Cross Party Group for Stroke and is also a Trustee of Chest, Heart and Stroke Scotland.

Lisa’s research experience underpins her contribution to internal and external teaching and education on research methodologies, stroke and self-management, and person centred care.  Externally, Lisa has contributed to national training resources and modules for stroke practitioners and volunteers working with people affected by stroke; the development of patient-facing self-management resources; and the education of early career stroke researchers through the Stroke Association’s Winter Stroke School.  Lisa currently sits on the National Clinical Guidelines for Stroke development group.  Since 2016, Lisa’s research has supported the implementation of the Scottish Government’s Stroke Improvement Plan, providing leadership and training on self-management in stroke and working with clinicians from across 14 NHS Health Boards to develop their practice and capacity for delivering supported self-management.  Lisa’s current research on supported self-management has underpinned the vision for the Scottish Government’s new Progressive Stroke Pathway.   More broadly, Lisa is strongly committed to community engagement and through her role with The Alliance, Scotland, sits on the Self-Management Grant Advisory Panel, advising on and supporting, collaborating and capacity building for self-management projects across third sector, community and statutory sectors in Scotland.
