Qualitative and mixed-methods Research Fellow, I primarily lead on the qualitative aspect of studies across a range of clinical and public health topics. Currently, I am based in Academic Orthopaedics, Trauma and Sports Medicine on the HaFTI-COS study, aiming to develop a core outcome set for flexor tendon injuries.
Recent studies include:
- Development and feasibility cohort RCT of a nurse-led package of care for knee pain,
- Determining a set of validated outcome measures for Crystal Pyrophosphate Disease (CPPD), with the Outcome Measures in Rheumatology (OMERACT) CPPD working group,
- Developing a risk-stratified, cost-effective, and acceptable blood-test monitoring strategy for inflammatory conditions treated with commonly used immune suppressing drugs,
- Exploring the barriers and facilitators to COVID-19, seasonal flu and pneumonia vaccine uptake among immunosuppressed adults with common inflammatory conditions.
