Academic staff conduct research and evaluation work in the field of health and social care. They work closely with a range of organisations (e.g. government departments, social services departments, local and health authorities and third sector organisations) to provide high quality research which is beneficial to policy makers, managers and practitioners. Many members of Faculty staff are qualified professionals (including social workers, nurses and youth workers) who have previous work experience in the health, social care and voluntary sectors in the UK and worldwide.
The main areas of expertise include:
- disability, long term conditions and rehabilitation
- ageing and older people children,
- young people and families
- interprofessional working, training and education
- policy interventions
- attitudes and behaviour
