Registered Nurse Adult Nursing, Respiratory specialist nurse. Master of Arts in Health Education and Health Promotion. Ph.D. investigating socially supportive self-management in people with COPD.
Lindsay is an early career researcher in the School of Health sciences located in the University of Southampton, UK. She currently leads the pre-registration global and public health module, supports research method teaching and supervisors BSc, MSc and internship (pre-PhD) students across the disciplines of health sciences.
Lindsay’s research is nested in the Long-Term Conditions research group, with a particular emphasis on values and needs of people with long term respiratory conditions. Through her Ph.D., Lindsay examined socially supported self-management strategies to enable people with COPD, by focussing on their personally valued activities. This required quantitative methodological techniques in social network analysis, health economic analysis, and analysis of large quantities of clinical outcome data. A qualitative meta-synthesis was also conducted to understand how people enact and embed self-management strategies into their lives.
Previously Lindsay has led several clinical service developmental bids including a successful bid with the service to the Queens Nursing Institute to develop a sustainable Singing in COPD project. This included further funding for the British Lung Foundation to integrate singing into the clinical service.
