 Brief description of your activity focus
Research in health and social care, with particular interest in the relationship between individuals, families, professionals and the state.

 Details about Expertise / Competences / Technologies
I have extensive experience of conducting longitudinal, qualitative and mixed methods studies in the areas of health and disability. These have included interviews, diaries, textual analysis, observation etc. I have written extensively on the theoretical and methodological issues underpinning qualitative and mixed methods research and the ethical issues which arise particularly in qualitative research. My empirical research covers a wide range of topics in health and social care, including diabetes, back pain, smoking, infant feeding, motherhood, teenage pregnancy, nutritional health, vaginal symptoms, learning disabilities, inpatient care for people with dementia, the extension of prescribing rights, previously restricted to doctors, to nurses and pharmacists and an evaluation of the Yellow Card Scheme for reporting adverse drug reactions.

 International and national projects beyond EU Framework Programme
Her empirical research covers a wide range of topics in health and social care, including diabetes, back pain, smoking, infant feeding, motherhood, teenage pregnancy, nutritional health, vaginal symptoms, learning disabilities, inpatient care for people with dementia, the extension of prescribing rights, previously restricted to doctors, to nurses and pharmacists and an evaluation of the Yellow Card Scheme for reporting adverse drug reactions.

These are drawn together by a common interest in the relationship between individuals, families, professionals and the state. In particular, this research has been concerned with the ways in which, in contemporary liberal states, power operates through discourses that define what is good, moral, responsible and legitimate. It explores the possibilities of resistance that exist for clients and professionals who are caught up in such discourses in relation to the delivery of health and social care. Much of this research has involved collaborations with colleagues from other disciplines.

Her methodological scholarship focuses upon the applications of social science methods to policy-relevant research. This includes extended work on the application of qualitative methods and mixed methods approaches to health policy research and an interdisciplinary collaborative study identifying optimal methods for eliciting professional and end-user requirements in the design and development of medical devices.
