Self-management of health problems
Our research addresses the self-management of long term health conditions such as diabetes, cardiovascular problems, musculoskeletal pain, depression, cancer; end of life care; common mental health problems.
Promoting person-centred care
Our research asks questions about patients’ ‘experiences’ of the care they receive and the ‘activities’ of health professionals that promote person-centred healthcare.
Physical Activity and Health
We are investigating the role of physical activity in improving health outcomes.
Work and Health
Our research underpins the development and application of a biopsychosocial or a ‘whole systems’ approach to preventing prolonged sickness absence and work disability, a leading global public health concern.
