Implementation of Functional Imagery Training into primary care

Sarah O'Rourke (Student)

Supervisors:  Professor Jackie Andrade, Tracey Parkin, Linda Solbrig

Functional Imagery Training (FIT) is an intervention that trains patients to use imagery to support long term goal attainment. It has been used with many patient populations, however this PhD is focusing on weight management.

To support the implementation of FIT a series of mixed method studies, working with healthcare professionals and patients, will be undertaken. Furthermore the theoretical underpinning of implementation science will be drawn upon to support the process of using FIT in healthcare settings.
