Research interests

My research over the last 20 years started with descriptive epidemiology:- urinary tract infection, prevalence of HIV in childbearing women, risk factors for Sudden Infant Death Syndrome, the prevalence of breastfeeding, prevalence of enuresis in school age children. I have since embarked upon trials to resolve these problems including, smoking during pregnancy and breastfeeding support. I have grant funding to establish a nurse led intervention for children with soiling and constipation prior to leading a multi-centre randomised controlled trial. I am part of a group performing an evaluation of specialist smoking cessation services for pregnant women throughout Scotland. I lead another group looking at the accuracy of self report by pregnant smokers. I will lead a research group to improve treatment of smoking during pregnancy in Scotland by establishing methods to identify all smokers, improving methods of referral and engagement, and improving treatment including access to Nicotine Replacement Therapy. Personal grant funding active since 2002 totals £797,338 with £472,779 as principal applicant. I have published 16 peer reviewed journal articles with 8 as 1st author in the last 5 years.

I am working with a group of academics at Glasgow University to establish a research unit skilled at developing and assessing the effectiveness of complex interventions. Our first project aims to describe specially supported foster placement prior to a trial of cost effectiveness compared with expensive residential care. My role will include the use of clinical trials within a programme for evaluation of complex interventions to improve health and well-being.
