Dr Katie Hackett

Associate Professor

Department: Social Work, Education and Community Wellbeing

My research is focused around the development and evaluation of complex interventions in chronic disease. I use a variety of research methods; qualitative, quantitative, systematic reviews  and mixed methods, such as group concept mapping. I have a particular interest in fatigue and autoimmune disease.
