Teresa Finlay

BSc(Hons), MSc, PGDipHPEd, PhD

Postdoctoral Researcher

  • Registered Nurse

I am one of the IRIHS team researching public and patient involvement and engagement (PPIE) in the Oxford BRCs and will be undertaking PPIE-related activities and curriculum development for the MSc in Evidence Based Health Care

I am interested in applying perspectives from science and technology studies in sociology to public and professional interests in health sciences and research. PPIE has become a requirement of research approval, but variable implementation and limited evidence for its benefits suggest conflicting interpretations and realisation of PPIE. I am interested in how different constructions of PPIE may be affecting its enactment and outcomes.

Recently I worked on The Waiting Room, a project to involve and engage the public in biobanking using digital medial in clinical waiting rooms. My doctoral research in Cardiff considered professional and user influences on the construction of commercial genomics in the UK’s context of the NHS provision of health care.

Previously I have enjoyed a varied career including extensive experience of cancer and critical care nursing and lecturing postgraduate healthcare students. I currently lecture on the Professional Doctorate in Nursing at Oxford Brookes University.
