Emma has worked in health services research in the UK, in Europe and North America. Having worked in industry, the NHS and academia, Emma has expertise in a wide range of qualitative and quantitative research methods which include randomised controlled trials, economic evaluations, systematic reviews, discrete choice experiments, surveys, interviews and focus groups and econometrics. Emma has a MSc in Research Methods and an MSc in Economic Evaluation in Healthcare and is on the PhD programme at University of Cambridge.
Emma’s main areas of research interest are the health economics of service delivery and health care workforce. Emma has most recently been involved in an evaluation of the Getting it Right First Time Programme (GIRFT), a study investigating the use of evidence in medical decision making (DECIDE), an evaluation of the incidence and cost of post-operative morbidities following paediatric cardiac surgery (MORBS), an evaluation of the cost-effectiveness of different model of transport for critically ill children (DEPICT), and is a co-applicant on the Coordinated Care in Rare Diseases study (CONCORD).
