Anna is interested in health service development and early interventions to promote health and wellbeing in children and families.
Anna has just completed her Doctoral Thesis at the University of Exeter Medical School, looking at the impact of information provision and service availability for young people with Attention-Deficit/Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD) when they are too old to stay in children’s services. As part of her PhD she conducted interviews with young people, their families and health workers to learn more about their experiences, and led a national survey mapping adult ADHD services in the UK. She is passionate about co-creating research with people who use and deliver services. She has worked in research since 2012, and been involved with a range of projects aimed at enhancing young people’s experience of education and health services. These have included evaluations of parenting programmes, randomised controlled trials, and systematic reviews.
She is currently a Research Associate in the Child Health group, situated within the University of Exeter College of Medicine and Health. Her focus is on understanding and mapping health services for young adults with Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD).
