Veronika Williams

PhD BSc (Hons) RGN

Departmental Lecturer and Senior Research Fellow

  • Director DPhil EBHC programme
  • Module co-lead for Advanced Qualitative Research Methods
  • Fellow of Kellogg College


I have a background in respiratory nursing and my research focuses on the experiences of people living with a long-term condition (with a particular interest in chronic respiratory disease and older people) and how we can support their self-management and health care needs with a focus on digital health. My other interests are in health services research, particularly skill mix in the NHS workforce. 

My research predominately involves qualitative research methods within health service research, but I also have expertise in conducting qualitative studies embedded within clinical trials (process evaluations) and mixed methods research. I am interested in complex intervention research and work on a number of existing digital health projects, including a randomised trial of an internet-based intervention to promote mental well-being in the general population (SocWell) and a HS&DR funded project on improving NHS Quality Using Internet Ratings and Experiences (INQUIRE) with Prof Powell; and SummiT-D, a NIHR PGfAR funded research programme developing and evaluating a mobile messaging support system for medication adherence in type 2 diabetes. 


I teach on the following MSc EBHC modules: Practice of EBHC; Introduction to Research Design and Methods; Mixed Methods Research; Qualitative Research Methods and Complex Reviews. I am also the joint module co-ordinator of the upcoming Advanced Qualitative Research Methods course (new for 2018/19). 

I am the Director of the DPhil EBHC programme, overseeing admission and progression of DPhil EBHC students. I supervise both Msc EBHC and DPhil students and currently accept new students for research supervision in my area of interest.
