Peter Knapp’s role at York spans two departments: the Department of Health Sciences (for research and postgraduate supervision) and the Hull York Medical School (where he leads on evidence-based decision-making and teaches across years 1-4).

He has worked in Higher Education since 1993 at the University of Leeds (in the Schools of Psychology, Medicine and Healthcare) and, since 2011, at the University of York and the Hull York Medical School. In 2015 he received a University of York Vice-Chancellor's award for 'Excellence in Teaching'.

Peter's main research interests and activity are in patient engagement with healthcare and information for patients, focused on information to support patient decision-making and behaviour. In particular this work has looked at information to support choice of treatments, the self-management of long-term conditions and decisions on research participation. His aim is to improve the quality and usefulness of information and to make it much more accessible, so that patients can make informed decisions about their health and healthcare.

In this seminar, Peter will discuss the TRECA study, evaluating the use of digital, multimedia information when recruiting children& adolescents to clinical trials.
