Maternal and child health
Work in this field has involved the use of high quality study designs to evaluate service innovations in maternity and child health services. Currently she is an investigator on a randomised controlled trial (RCT) of a pregnancy outreach worker service to see whether it improves antenatal care engagement, psychological health and infant outcomes of multi-ethnic women with social risk. This is funded as part of the Collaborations for Leadership in Applied Health Research and Care (CLAHRC). An RCT of the effectiveness of physical activity for reducing postnatal depression is currently underway. She is an investigator on a feasibility of trial of preventing obesity in pregnancy (POPS) funded by the NSPCR and Led by Dr Amanda Daley. A recent RCT evaluated the effectiveness of a breastfeeding peer support service on breastfeeding initiation and continuation rates (HoBBIT). Systematic reviews are completed or underway on the effects of peer support on breastfeeding peer support and the effectiveness and safety of interventions to limit weight gain in overweight and obese pregnant women.
Population-based behaviour change
She has led recent RCTs evaluating the effectiveness of a range of commercial and NHS provided weight management programmes for people in primary care (Lighten Up) and an evaluation of a self-determination theory approach to an exercise referral programme (EMPOWER) in collaboration with colleagues from Sport and Exercise Science . She is an investigator on a NPRI funded trial of brief interventions for weight management in primary care led by Professor Paul Aveyard.
Rehabilitation and secondary prevention of chronic disease.
As part of the Birmingham and Black Country CLAHRC, she is evaluating a chronic disease education programme for people from a multi-ethnic population. She has led two large trials in the field of cardiac rehabilitation: the Birmingham rehabilitation Uptake Maximisation Study (BRUM) compared the outcomes of home-based and centre-based cardiac rehabilitation and BRUM-CHF was an RCT evaluating a home-based exercise programme for patients with heart failure. A trial of self-management of COPD will be starting in 2013.
