About the Project
The project will:
• Identify challenges to effective self-management of diabetes from different stakeholder perspectives (patients, carers, health professionals/workers, policy makers, voluntary sectors)
• Enhance understanding of the social, cultural, economic, and health system related context impacting on self-management and support.
• Identify, using health psychology theories, what kind of intervention is needed, who it could be aimed at, what content and format is required, where should it be delivered, and what may be the likely mechanisms and outcomes of change.
• Explore feasibility and acceptability of a prototype self-management support intervention.
This PhD will use theories from health psychology (related to self-management support, health behaviour change and shared decision-making), adopt coproduction and MRC complex intervention frameworks and involve use of mixed methods including questionnaires, qualitative interviews and/or focus groups as well as innovative approaches combining use of storytelling/photo-voice methods. The project is flexible, allowing the student take initiative and explore and develop their ideas.
