A 2023 MPH graduate was runner up in the Borrow Foundation Early Career Research Prize
Christopher Mackie (BDS) who graduated MPH (Distinction, 2023) presented his research project findings at a recent Community Dentistry Conference in Cork, Ireland.
Christopher is pictured (above, second from left) receiving his award.
"As part of my MPH degree, I was able to carry out a piece of qualitative research I am immensely proud of. My project involved inductive thematic analysis of a number of semi-structured interviews regarding the health and wellbeing of NHS General Dental Practitioners during the COVID-19 pandemic, and their thoughts and opinions on future contract reform.
The project was then submitted in poster format to the BASCD (British Association for the Study of Community Dentistry) Summer Scientific Meeting and was chosen as a runner-up in the Borrow Foundation Early Career Research Prize.
The abstract will be published in a supplement of the Community Dental Health Journal, and I am now pursuing publication of a research article with my supervisor."
