Other Work

In addition to our evidence-based practice studies, we have undertaken work in two significant areas:

Health Psychology and Heath Promotion

Our work in this important area explores how the principles of health psychology can be applied to improve health promotion practice and thereby improve the health and well-being of the population. In particular, our studies have focused on:

Evaluation of child weight management programmes

Evaluation of the Food Dudes healthy eating programme

Tackling Indigenous Smoking and Healthy Lifestyles

Psychology of Wound Care and Wound Healing

Our research in this area is concerned with exploring the experience of patients with chronic wounds. Both in terms of how wounds can be influenced by stress and pain but also how wound care can be improved for the patient benefit:

Stress and pain in wound care

Patient experience of Negative Pressure Wound Therapy

Well-Being in people with chronic wounds
