Dr Jenni Burt, University of Cambridge
Senior Research Associate
First and foremost, I am a health services researcher. In my career to date, I have worked across primary care, palliative care, and public health, but for the last six years I have been firmly back in the primary care research community.
I am currently Senior Research Associate in the Primary Care Unit at the University of Cambridge. I most recently managed the ‘Improve’ NIHR programme grant, a five-year portfolio of quantitative, qualitative and mixed methods studies investigating the utility and impact of patient experience surveys in primary care. As well as patient experience, and particularly interactions between doctors and patients, I maintain an interest in long-term conditions (I was recently involved in the national evaluation of care planning for long term conditions, in collaboration with Manchester University) and inequalities in care (my MRC Fellowship in Health Services Research focused on an assessment of the equity of use of specialist palliative care in relation to age).
I have a degree in Biological Anthropology from Cambridge University, an MSc in Public Health from the London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine (LSHTM), and a PhD in Epidemiology and Public Health from UCL. I also have a particular interest in the development and application of mixed methods, and in knowledge exchange for academics.
