Biography

While working for the Centre for Health and Social Care Improvement (CHSCI) at the University of Wolverhampton, Natalie developed an interest in service evaluations.  Her main project at CHSCI was service evaluation of Physician Associates (then called Physician Assistants).  This explored learning on the job, and the use of netbooks in CPD, which led to the theme of education running through almost all of her subsequent posts, especially at the Centre for the Use of Research & Evidence in Education (CUREE).

Research

Natalie's last project was researching patients’ views and interpretations of the diagnostic images of their brain tumour. 

Prior to this, she analysed results from the Entry to Study survey completed by STEM students and focus groups were convened to explore their experiences in more detail.  The Entry to Study survey is now being developed and promoted alongside such surveys as the PTES. 

Her work at the Centre for the Use of Research & Evidence in Education (CUREE) varied from assisting evaluating CPD systems in schools, survey analysis, interviewing, literature reviews, producing resources for teachers and knowledge management.

At CHSCI, Natalie’s main project was a mixed methods service evaluation of Physician Associates (then called Physician Assistants).  This explored learning on the job; and acceptance in the workplace of the new role.
