Research Summary

Her research involves both quantitative and qualitative methodologies. It includes an MRC funded national randomised controlled trial of arthritis self-management in primary care and a national RCT of practice nurse led pro-active care for primary care patients with chronic or recurrent depression, as well as several qualitative studies investigating clinician attitudes to working with patients with medically unexplained symptoms. Her most recent research projects have been examining factors associated with distress and depression in general practitioners and suicidality in hospital doctors.

Teaching Summary

She was involved in setting up a general practice based course teaching medical students about community mental health problems as well as courses around avoiding over-investigation and the management of medically unexplained symptoms and somatisation, all of which are still running and get good feedback. 

She has been involved in teaching courses for foundation year doctors and psychological well-being practitioners and supervised many BSc and MSc student dissertations, as well as several PhD candidates to successful completion.
