Amadea Turk

BSc, MSc

NIHR Doctoral Research Fellow

I am an NIHR Doctoral Research Fellow interested in the role primary care plays in addressing health inequalities through action on social determinants of health. My project explores the way in which social prescribing is being implemented in areas with high levels of socioeconomic disadvantage. I am also the Rosemary Stewart Scholar at Green Templeton College.

I have worked on a range of projects relating to the design and delivery of primary care services, including a programme of projects around social prescribing.

In the past, I have worked on a range of projects relating to the delivery of primary care services. I led a realist review as part of the NIHR HTA funded Tailor Medication Synthesis project. The project aimed to explore the optimisation of a whole-person-centred approach to stopping medicines in older people with multimorbidity and polypharmacy. I have also worked on projects relating to digital health in primary care. These include exploring the potential of online patient feedback to drive health service improvements; the development of a digital platform to support older carers and a systematic review of two-way digital communication for the management of diabetes in children and adolescents. I have also been involved in a number of projects on Patient and Public Involvement.
