Biography

Research Interests

Professor MacFarlane has over 20 years' experience as a social science health services researcher and have performed as a research project leader in academic primary care since 2002. She is leading a programme of research about service user involvement in primary care.

Anne has extensive experience of quantitative and qualitative research. Her research programme is characterised by inter-disciplinary and inter-agency research collaborations, particularly academic-community partnerships.

Her recent research programme is distinguished by her 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. Her 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.

She has also contributed to her field through her 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/). She has 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 she led was endorsed in 2010 by an EU FP7 award of 2.9 million euros, for which she led. This project will involved 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 employed 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 her previous successes in research and development funding. She is PI/grant holder for research and development funding of 4,328,070 euros and co-applicant/collaborator for 2,064,362 euros, giving a total research income of 6,392,432 euros. Anne has
a strong record of research outputs with international and national publications, research reports and book chapters. She is committed to dissemination of research at academic conferences. She is recognised within her discipline as a key resource for capacity building and has had significant success as a postgraduate research supervisor and as methodological advisor for primary care clinicians and non-clinicians.


CURRENT PROJECTS IN RESEARCH PROGRAMME

Prof MacFarlane leads 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
