Staff Profile

Dr Dawn Swancutt

Research Fellow

Kath Maguire

I have been a Research Fellow within the PenARC team since their earlier days of PenCLAHRC in 2014, managing new projects that are prioritised by their question generation system. My background is in understanding, and looking for improvements in patient's experience of their care. I work with qualitative and quantitative methods to explore how local health services are being used and developed and how that influences their use by patients.

I have a wide range of skills that apply to different healthcare settings. The projects I have led include; mapping intermediate community care, perceptions about getting up following a fall, evaluating how GPs are trained to discuss multimorbidity and delivery of services for people with severe obesity. 

I typically work across multidisciplinary teams that comprise scientific, social and economic researchers together with front-line clinical staff and patients. I enjoy the challenge of bringing together different views to gain a holistic picture of health improvement.

I am also a member of the Making Sense of Evidence (MSE) steering committee and teaching team.
