James graduated from Kings College London in 2004 with an MSc in Health Psychology, having already attained a BSc. in Psychology from Queens University, Belfast. James joined the Primary Care Unit in May 2005 where he took up the post of Research Assistant, working on a pilot study to examine smoking cessation through the use of mobile phone text messaging and subsequently iQuit in Practice, a feasibility trial evaluating a tailored web and text messaging based intervention for smoking cessation in primary care.
James’s research interests include the use of electronic interventions to facilitate health behaviour change and the role of patient adherence and medication taking behaviour.
James is currently undertaking a PhD within the Department of Public Health & Primary Care looking at adherence to medication for the secondary prevention of stroke. His PhD focuses on understanding the role of barriers and facilitators of medication adherence, exploring the medication needs of stroke survivors and examining the role of caregivers in adherence to secondary prevention.
