Prof. Anne Macfarlane

Research Interests

I have 20 years' experience as a social science health services researcher and have performed as a research project leader in academic primary care since 2002. I am leading a programme of research about service user involvement in primary care.


I have extensive experience of quantitative and qualitative research. My research programme is characterised by inter-disciplinary and inter-agency research collaborations, particularly academic-community partnerships.

My recent research programme is distinguished by my pioneering use of innovative participatory research methods to conduct community-engaged research, with marginalised communities, to support the involvement of service users in primary care research and development projects. My work is showing that there is significant congruence between participatory methods and the ideals of user involvement with valuable outcomes for the quality of the empirical data reported in the field, and also for creating meaningful and sustained relationships between academic and community partners. Published and planned papers provide evidence of this.

I have also contributed to my field through my involvement, from the beginning, as an invited member, in an international study group who are developing contemporary social theory − Normalisation Process Theory. This theory is designed to inform and advance the introduction and normalisation of new technologies in routine primary care http://www.normalizationprocess.org/). I have played a key role in operationalising the theory in settings outside the UK, e.g. in Ireland and in other European countries (e.g. http://www.ehealthservices.eu/enews, eNewsletter October 2008).

The international relevance of the research programme on user involvement which I lead was endorsed in 2010 by an EU FP7 award of €2.9 million, for which I am lead. This project will involve service users who are migrants living in Ireland and who have limited English, and other key stakeholders, in research to investigate and support the introduction of initiatives to support communication in cross-cultural general practice consultations. The project will employ participatory research methods and Normalisation Process Theory to produce state-of-the-art research about user involvement approaches to address translational gaps in health services research.

This award builds on my previous successes in research and development funding. I am PI/grant holder for research and development funding of €4,328,070 and co-applicant/collaborator for €2,064,362, giving a total research income of €6,392,432 .

I have a strong record of research outputs with international and national publications, research reports and book chapters. I am committed to dissemination of research at academic conferences.

I am recognised within my discipline as a key resource for capacity building and I have had significant success as a postgraduate research supervisor and as methodological advisor for primary care clinicians and non-clinicians.


CURRENT PROJECTS IN RESEARCH PROGRAMME



I lead a programme of research about user involvement in primary care and manage a series of inter-linked projects about migrant health and e-health that, taken together, explore important issues about using participatory research methods and contemporary social theory in primary care research and development projects.



2011-present


User involvement in the implementation of guidelines and/or training initiatives to support communication in cross cultural primary care settings – Principal Investigator. This is an EU FP7 funded project developed in collaboration with local collaborators, the Centre for Participatory Strategies, Galway and with international collaborators in Glasgow, Liverpool, Nijmegen, Vienne and Crete. This project combines participatory learning and action research methodology and contemporary social theory, Normalisation Process Theory, to investigate and support implementation processes.



2010- present


An analysis of user involvement in practice – Principal Investigator. This is a HRB funded project developed in collaboration with the Centre for Participatory Strategies, Galway and the HSE National Advocacy Unit, Dublin. This project employs participatory learning and action research methodology and contemporary social theory, Normalisation Process Theory, to analyse user involvement in practice in international settings and community participation in primary care teams in the Irish context.




2008-present


UK Normalisation Process Model International Study Group (led by Prof. Carl May, University of Southampton) – Invited Member. This inter-disciplinary, international research group is committed to the development of a theoretical model to explain and predict implementation of innovation in healthcare settings. The group achieved status as a UK National School of Primary Care Peer Learning Set (October 2008). Annual seminars are utilised to advance critical thinking and key outputs include the development of an ESRC funded online manual for Normalisation Process Theory users which was launched at a seminar in the King's Fund, London in October 2010 (see http://www.normalizationprocess.org/). I am a key player in operationalising NPT in settings outside the UK.

COMPLETED PROJECTS


2009-2011

User involvement in the development of guidelines to support communication in cross-cultural general practice consultations – Principal Investigator. This was a Health Research Board Partnership Award based on a collaboration with the HSE Social Inclusion Unit and the Centre for Participatory Strategies, Galway. This project used participatory and qualitative research methods to involve migrant service users and other key stakeholders in the production of guidelines for communication in cross-cultural general practice consultations.

2007-2011

Competitive health services in rural and remote regions – Partner. This research and development project was funded by the EU Northern Periphery Programme. This project focused on the implementation of e-health services in rural and remote areas. It involved the application, and qualitative evaluation, of an e-Health Implementation Toolkit (e-HIT), developed from the Normalisation Process Model (pre-cursor to Normalisation Process Theory) for which I was lead.

2004-2010

Fellow in Refugee and Asylum Seeker Healthcare – Principal Investigator/ Academic Lead. This project was funded by the Primary Care Department, HSE Western Area. It was an innovative, inter-agency post which focused on intercultural health issues in general practice with attention to clinical practice, service development and academic projects (quantitative and qualitative research) and was developed and monitored by the Primary Care Department, HSE Western Area, NUI Galway and the Galway Refugee Support Group. I was academic lead and Steering Group Chair.

2007-2009

EU NORFACE Seminar Series: Evidence based policy (led by Prof. Sandra Nutley, University of Edinburgh) – Partner. This seminar series explored the relationship between research and policy and the impact of one on the other. Working groups and academic presentations were used to share and advance knowledge between academics, policy makers and service planners about the development of evidence based policy in health care and other sectors in Ireland, Scotland, Iceland, Norway and the Netherlands. I was the lead Irish partner for this project.

2007-2008

Evaluation of uptake of a HSE pilot interpreting service for general practitioners in the Eastern Region – Principal Investigator. Funded by the Health Service Executive Social Inclusion Unit. This research was designed to use quantitative and qualitative methods to examine levers and barriers to the uptake of an available pilot interpreting service for general practitioners from the perspectives of general practice staff, migrant community service users and those working in the interpreting sector. I led on the use of NPM in this research.

2007-2008

An Evaluation of a Peer Research Model in Primary Care Research: CARe follow-on project – Principal Investigator and Researcher. Funded by University College Dublin's Migration and Citizenship Research Initiative.
