Risk, Abuse and Violence Research Programme

RAV logoProgramme Lead:  Dr Caroline Bradbury-Jones

Aim of RAV

Our aim is to build a body of research and scholarly evidence in relation to Risk, Abuse and Violence that dovetails with and informs teaching and clinical activities in the University of Birmingham and builds on the evidence base within health and social care. 

Focus and vision

This research programme was formally established in September 2016 and builds on considerable international research undertaken by core members in preceding years. Our vision is that RAV will give structure and identity to the risk, abuse and violence research activities in the School of Nursing. We will grow capacity and reach a critical mass within the RAV programme.

We intend that the RAV programme will put University of Birmingham on the map as the university that undertakes high quality research and associated educational provision in risk, abuse and violence. Partnering with the Centre for Crime Justice and Policing and the Institute of Global Innovation, RAV research will impact locally, nationally and globally.

RAV members

Most of the RAV team are based in the School of Nursing, University of Birmingham but there are members from across the university.

Student members

Joht Chandan 
Part-Time PhD in Public Health

I am an Academic Foundation Doctor with a keen interest in Public Health. My interest in Public Health has largely originated from a BSc in Population Health and Primary Care. This alongside my ongoing experience as a voluntary police officer has stemmed my interest in the combined field of police and medical research. As a result, I am particularly interested in the area of child maltreatment. Child maltreatment, estimated to affect more than 1 in 4 children, can lead to a variety of long term physical, psychological and social difficulties which can pose a significant public health burden. Further investigation into the effects of child maltreatment make up my area of research.

Marie Clancy 
PhD student F/T

I am a children’s nurse and have worked nationally at Birmingham Children’s Hospital and Acorns Children’s Hospice and internationally in Australia, the Caribbean, New Zealand and Malawi. I have always enjoyed teaching and after undertaking an educator role in Malawi through the Tropical Health Education Trust partnership between Birmingham Children’s Hospital and the Queen Elizabeth Central Hospital, Blantyre I joined the University of Wolverhampton in 2010 to commence an academic lecturing role. I joined University of Birmingham in 2015 and I am also currently studying for a PhD.

Louise Isham
PhD student

I am a doctoral student and qualified social worker with practice experience in child protection and family substance misuse treatment.  My research interests focus on family violence and abuse, family caregiving and applied health and social care practice in these areas.

Rosa Keneally 
PhD student F/T

I am a registered midwife. I am undertaking a PhD entitled: An exploration of midwives’ experiences in their role in responding to DVA towards women in pregnancy. I am supervised by Drs Caroline Bradbury-Jones, Nicki Ward & Maria Clark. My study is qualitative and I am particularly interested in how midwives’ personal experiences can impact on their practice.

Ronnie Meechan
PhD student P/T and staff member

My PhD investigates the impact of non-consensual sharing of intimate images on the mental health of gay men. I began my PhD in early 2018. I have been accepted onto the European Academy of Nursing Science summer school programme for three years commencing 2018. This will be an invaluable forum to feed into my doctoral studies and in dissemination as my study progresses. 

Susan Waigwa
PhD student F/T

I am a PhD student with qualifications as a social worker. My doctoral research is focused on health education as an intervention to prevent Female Genital Mutilation/Cutting (FGM/C). FGM/C involves the total or partial removal of female genitalia without medical purpose. It has been associated with various physical and psychological health problems. It is illegal in most counties and is categorised as a form of abuse. Although the prevalence of FGM/C is concentrated in some African, Middle East and Asian countries, it is a global concern because migration has contributed to further geographical distribution to countries such as the United Kingdom (UK) and USA.

Affiliated membership to RAV

What is an affiliated RAV member?

The RAV team networks are extensive and interdisciplinary and so we welcome membership through affiliation across all sectors. Affiliated members comprise collaborators and partners from multiple organisations (e.g. NSPCC, Women’s Aid, NHS, HEIs). Many are international for example, USA, Finland, New Zealand and Africa. There are no strict criteria on who can become an affiliated RAV member, but most have some form of collaborative connection with a member of the RAV team. 

Affiliated membership provides RAV with external knowledge and engagement from a range of perspectives. This ensures that its development, growth and expansion are grounded in practice and policy, informed by global perspectives. The RAV programme is a useful forum for affiliated members, who link with the rest of the team and other affiliates, to form a strong, international, multidisciplinary group who collectively aim to tackle risk, abuse and violence in society.

What is expected of an Affiliated RAV member?

We expect affiliated members to engage with us in a way that most of us do anyway. However, the RAV programme provides a formal, recognised platform through which collaborations and connections can be facilitated. We hope that affiliated members will attend one of the workshops that take place three times per year – the focus of which is engagement and sharing. Affiliated RAV members have an individual bio and a photograph (encouraged but not essential).

How do I become a RAV member?

It’s really simple.  You can register using our online form:


  • Name


It may take a few weeks to process and you will receive confirmation once your application is received and uploaded to the RAV website.  You will be invited to update your profile every six months.

RAV Meetings

The RAV team meets monthly to discuss day-to-day RAV issues. Three times per year we hold wider meetings with affiliated members – we call these RAV workshops. These workshops are used for dissemination, sharing and communicating on RAV related activities.
