Research interests

Aligned with my programme of research focused on patient safety and kidney health, I am interested in addressing the 'second translational gap' between clinical research and healthcare delivery. In particular, through multidisciplinary research I am interested in supporting the development of an evidence base that takes into account multimorbidity in the delivery of care for people living with long-term conditions. As a member of the Long-Term Conditions research theme at the Centre for Primary Care, my research considers the practise of minimally disruptive medicine in both research design and delivery of care.

I currently chief investigator for a randomised controlled trial evaluating a complex self-management intervention aimed at improving outcomes for patients with stage 3 chronic kidney disease. This study forms a key element of the Collaboration for Leadership in Applied Health Research (CLAHRC) for Greater Manchester, which aims to improve the quality of vascular care for people with vascular diseases.
