Research Interests

I am a Research Fellow at the PSSRU in the University of Kent’s School of Social Policy, Sociology and Social Research (SSPSSR). I joined the unit in 2012 as a research associate to work on the Identifying the Impact of Adult Social Care project, which informed the inclusion of a new outcome indicator (1J) in the Adult Social Care Outcomes Framework in England (http://bit.ly/2y9zQ3j). Since then, I have worked on a number of research projects funded by the Department of Health under the Quality and Outcomes of person-centred care policy Research Unit (www.qoru.ac.uk). My research interests include quality of life outcomes of social care, especially in relation to family or friend carers, and also the translation and cross-cultural adaptation of ASCOT. I have been involved in the development and testing of the Adult Social Care Outcomes Toolkit for carers (ASCOT-Carer), as well as easy-read and proxy-report versions of the instrument, and the translation of the ASCOT measures into Dutch, Norwegian and Japanese.
