Researching Complex Health, Technology and Contract Management Interventions in Health Services

About our research

This work covers a variety of areas. This includes the Oral Health and Health Services groups, our work into complex interventions, inequalities and health, technological and other innovation in care and service delivery.

Topics range from laboratory exploration of new technology to aid diagnosis in dentistry to evaluations of new practitioner contracts. Our expertise ranges from statistical design and analysis of RCT of complex interventions though qualitative research using interviews, focus groups and ethnographic observation.

We centre on community settings, but not exclusively- as our work extends to shared care and screening, and we also use cross-faculty teams and paradigms to research into hard to reach groups such as the ‘Chinese Community’.
