Liz has a professional background as a social scientist. Across her career she has amassed specialist methodological skills in evidence synthesis (systematic reviews, qualitative reviews and realist synthesis) and the application of sociological and psychological theory that allows her to systematically co-develop and rigorously evaluate complex intervention strategies to promote the uptake of evidence based practices into routine practice in the NHS.
Liz aims to improve the uptake of evidence-based practice to benefit patients. She has specialist knowledge of Psychological and Sociological theories of behaviour change. She develops and evaluates interventions to change professional and patient behaviour. Liz also contributes to both the empirical and theoretical evidence base to optimise implementation research, e.g. establishing the evidence base for implementation interventions (systematic reviews, narrative reviews and scoping reviews); optimising the selection and content of intervention components and evaluating such interventions in the UK National Health Service using cluster randomised trials and parallel process evaluations.
