Trained Clinical Psychologist, Learning Disabilities, Mental Health, Data collection for RCT, Systematic Literature Reviews.
I am currently working on a PenCLAHRC affiliated Systematic Literature Review within the Evidence Synthesis Team, aimed at exploring the effectiveness of interventions aimed at improving the mental health of young people with long-term physical conditions. This review has three parts; a quantitative part to review the effectiveness of the interventions and their cost-effectiveness, a qualitative part to review the experiences of young people, their parents and those administering the interventions and an over-arching synthesis of the information gathered though parts 1 and 2. This review shall take 15 months, starting in January 16. I am greatly looking forward to working alongside medical and mental health experts within the field and the young people with lived experience of LTC.
