Georgette is a NIHR Doctoral Research Fellow and advanced paramedic, currently working on her DPhil based in the Centre for Evidence Based Medicine.
Her DPhil topic is looking at the impact of paramedics in NHS primary care, considering their role in this setting and answering questions about how, why, for whom and in what contexts paramedics work in primary care.
Dr Tanvi Rai and Bakita Kasadha are researchers in the Medical Sociology and Health Experiences Research Group working on Nourish-UK, a study about infant-feeding decisions within the context of HIV. The study involves interviewing women and birthing parents with HIV who are pregnant or have a baby under a year old, about what has influenced the way they choose to feed their baby, what information and support they have found useful and where they would like to see improvements. The interviews will be used to develop a module on the award-winning free online resource, Healthtalk.org, to create a record of people’s experiences of infant-feeding while living with HIV. This site will serve as a resource for others living with HIV, and for the clinical and non-clinical professionals supporting them. The study findings will also be used to update information and support about infant-feeding provided by the British HIV Association.
