Liz is a Senior Research Fellow working within the NIHR Applied Research Collaboration Yorkshire & Humber Older People’s theme. She is managing work to identify the research priorities of older people living with frailty in their own homes or care homes, with the aim of developing an intervention to improve care, quality of life or service delivery which aligns with one or more of these priorities.

Liz also works on the Academic Unit for Ageing and Stroke Research’s care home portfolio. She was the Trial Manager for the PATCH Trial – a cluster randomised controlled trial to evaluate the feasibility of delivering the Skilful Care Training Package (physiotherapy-based training for care staff) to care home staff. She is currently managing the HARP-B study (How to Assess Residents’ Posture in Bed), which aims to develop a new tool to assess the posture of care home residents who spend long periods of time in bed. Liz has recently completed a PhD exploring the feasibility of undertaking a complex intervention trial in English care homes. She has extensive experience of managing randomised controlled trials, in particular those evaluating complex interventions in mental health services and care home settings.
