Research interests:

I am interested in improving the management of long term conditions within primary health care. Part of this is supporting patients with ling term conditions to better manage their condition, to engage in more healthy behaviours and reduce the health impairing behaviours. I am also interested in more effective use of the health service, patient perceptions of health professional roles and improved patient-practitioner communication.

Teaching interests:

I teach on undergraduate and postgraduate programmes. I am interested in the constant improvement of my teaching methods, as well as teaching health psychology at all levels and across disciplines (i.e. health care professionals as well as psychology students).
