Rosie is a Research Fellow currently working on the NIHR-funded ‘Partners At Care Transitions’ (PACT) programme grant, since May 2017. This is aimed at improving the safety and experience of care for older patients and their carers as they move from hospital to home. She originally qualified as an Occupational Therapist, then worked at the Academic Unit of Elderly Care and Rehabilitation between 2009-2017 studying: Care and unmet needs in the longer term after stroke; Implementing a programme of person-centred care for people with dementia on acute hospital wards; Models of high and low performing community hospitals.
Rosie’s experience includes: complex mixed methods research in hospital settings; working with older people who may have cognitive impairment; qualitative methods including observation and interview. She completed her MSc in Health Research in 2012, which included a qualitative investigation of self-reported low-level unmet need after stroke.
Research interests include: ageing and the care of older people; patient and staff experiences of healthcare; health services and their improvement; development, implementation and evaluation of complex interventions.
