Summary: NIHR School for Social Care Research Career Development Fellow

Location: Baines Wing


 Louise is an early career researcher with a clinical background as a Registered Nurse (BSc, Curtin University, Australia) and a Graduate Diploma in Public Health (University of Western Australia). Her PhD (University of Western Australia) explored the association between nurse staffing levels and inpatient complication rates in Western Australian tertiary hospitals with a longitudinal retrospective cohort design using linked health data.

Louise is interested in applied health and social care research which uses linkage of routinely collected health and social care data to conduct longitudinal, population-level research. Her particular areas of interest include: health and social care workforce, primary care, frailty, and measurement of health care quality and outcomes of care. She values an approach to research which incorporates engagement with public and third sector parties with shared interests.

Louise was recently awarded an NIHR School for Social Care Research Career Development Award for her project: Understanding the prevalence, care and management of frailty in care home residents.
