Research Interests

Lizzie is currently working on the the Department of Health, Policy Research Programme funded national programme evaluation of the new models of care Vanguard programme in England. Since joining the unit in 2007, she has worked on a number of projects exploring personalisation in health and social care. Most notably she worked on the Personal Health Budgets Evaluation and its bolt on substance misuse evaluation, both of which were funded by the Department of Health. Lizzie has also been involved in the Ascot Feedback Intervention Study (AFIS) which examined whether structured feedback about quality of life can have an impact on care home residents’ daily lives. Previous to this she was involved in the Measuring the Productivity of Workforce Development in Care Homes project (an extension of the overarching MOPSU project), and was also involved in numerous stands of the HM Treasury funded Measuring Outputs for Public Service Users (MOPSU) project.
