Health Research

My academic interest is in how we can get knowledge into practice in health systems. Despite extensive efforts to generate evidence for policy and practice in healthcare, gaps in implementing good practice remain both significant and stubbornly persistent. Through my doctorate in evidence-based health care at the University of Oxford I aim to better understand why this is, using psychological theories to explore how clinicians think and act, and drawing on my professional experience to explore how to get evidence into policy.

I am a visiting lecturer at the Management Centre Innsbruck, where I teach courses including cooperation between European health systems and current issues in health policy. I am also a member of the scientific advisory committee of the European Health Management Association and of the British Psychological Society.
