Research

Elizabeth is currently a Research Fellow, based in the Policy Innovation Research Unit (PIRU) within the Health Services Research and Policy (HSRP) department.  Her projects include a qualitative study seeking to understand why people take part in genomic research, and an evaluation of the implementation of the UK government's Antimicrobial Resistance strategy.  She is interested in how antibiotics are prescribed in primary care, the public's relationship with antibiotics, and their understanding of antimicrobial resistance.  

Her previous work has included a qualitative study examining the impact and perception of Critical Care Outreach Teams in UK acute care; an evaluation of RNIB's community engagment programmes, which were designed to tackle preventable blindness in deprived communities across the UK; and an RCT of the Camden Weight Loss (CAMWEL) Trial, a one-to-one lifestyle management programme based in UK primary care.
