About me

I am a chartered psychologist and member of the Division of Health Psychology, based in Academic Rheumatology at the Bristol Royal Infirmary. I lead the UWE Rheumatology Team, a multi-disciplinary group conducting applied research to address questions from clinical practice in relation to inflammatory rheumatic diseases.

Our focus is on outcomes important to patients, the psychological impact of inflammatory rheumatic conditions, self-management support provision, fatigue, patient activation and nurse-led care. We use a range of quantitative, qualitative and mixed methods study designs. Collaboration with Patient Research Partners is integral to all our research.

We work with national and international collaborators from nursing, medicine, patient involvement, psychology, and allied health professionals (including physiotherapy and occupational therapy).
