Staff Profile

Kath Wilkinson

Postdoctoral Research Associate

Kath Maguire

I took on the role of Postdoctoral Research Fellow in January 2020 to work on the ExCHANGE project, a collaboration between organisations in the South-West concerned with the care and happiness of care home residents. The project aims to build capacity for research knowledge and implementation, and mobilise knowledge between partners and stakeholders.

I have worked within PenARC/PenCLAHRC since January 2016 on various research and evaluation projects across child and adult health and social care, with a primary focus on service improvement and the implementation of research in practice.
