I am currently undertaking evaluation research on the Elizabeth Garratt Anderson Programme; an healthcare leadership programme delivered by the Universities of Manchester and Birmingham. 



I have worked in health services research since completing my MSc in Health Psychology in 2003, first exploring the effectiveness of brief interventions for smoking and alcohol misuse in various clinical settings in London and the South East. I returned to the University of Manchester in 2009 to undertake a PhD, entitled "Synthesising existing and developing new evidence on effective healthcare professional training that aims to improve the management of psychological distress in primary care". This PhD enabled me to pursue my interest in health professional behaviour change and from this I have developed a taxonomy of healthcare professional training intervention components (TIC taxonomy) and the perceived effectiveness of training (PET) framework. Since completing my PhD I have worked in the Centre for Primary Care undertaking patient safety research, and also in the Division of Psychology and Mental Health using my PhD research to design training to improve the care of people in prison who are living with Cognitive Impairment and Dementia.
