Lisa has a keen interest in working with patients and health professionals to improve care and currently facilitates the patient and public involvement group for the DIPLOMA study (evaluation of the NHS Diabetes Prevention Programme). 

For her PhD, Lisa investigated the use of telehealth in Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease within a UK healthcare setting, to understand the barriers to using telehealth in routine care from a 'user' perspective.  Lisa has a strong research interest in how digital technologies are perceived by policy makers, patients and health professionals and how that translates into the use and implementation of such technologies in healthcare.
