Alicia Renedo's Research

I am a social psychologist with expertise in qualitative health research. I have a research interest in community participation and patient involvement interventions, with a particular emphasis on both the critical appraisal of theoretical and empirical aspects of participation. Other areas of interest include: homelessness, young people and sickle cell disease.

I am currently working with Dr Cicely Marston on a eight-year ethnographic project investigating patient and public involvement in healthcare research and service improvement in the NHS (National Institute for Health Research, Collaborations for Leadership in Applied Health Research and Care for Northwest London). A core part of my work is the critical appraisal of the concepts of involvement, empowerment and participation, with an emphasis on what 'involvement' means in practice.

Some of my papers are openly available here and here.
