Warda’s current research activity is primarily comprised of her work on the Shifting Shapes study, a Department of Health funded study evaluating care-related outcomes for both social care users and carers. The economic analysis that Warda is working on is part of a larger project evaluating the impact of the 2014 Care Act at both the local authority and national levels.
Warda has also been working on the speed of increasing milk feeds trial (SIFT) since December. This is a randomised controlled trial (RCT) conducted by colleagues at the National Perinatal Epidemiology Unit(NPEU) comparing outcomes of two different speeds of increasing milk feeds in premature and very low birth weight neonates. Warda is working on the economic evaluation that accompanies the RCT by assessing the cost-effectiveness of the alternative feeding strategies
