Louise Brereton is a Senior Lecturer in College of Social Science.I am a Registered General Nurse with experience of working in adult nursing settings. I have worked as a nurse teacher / lecturer/ Senior Lecturer in several Schools of Nursing and Universities across Yorkshire, Lincolnshire and Nottinghamshire since 1988. Prior to my appointment here, I worked as a Research Fellow on the INTEGRATE-HTA project at the School of Health and Related Research (ScHARR) in the University of Sheffield. I was the ScHARR lead for public involvement and the lead regional advisor for public involvement for the NIHR Research Design Service Yorkshire and the Humber (RDSYH). I was Chair of the RDSYH Patient and Public Involvement Panel and the Public Involvement Funding Panel. I chaired the Palliative Care Studies Advisory Group (PCSAG) in 2013-2015. I have co-presented and co-authored research publications with lay people involved in the research I have undertaken.
My research interests lie in family caring, stroke, palliative and end of life care, including the impact of physical environment on end of life care. I am also interested in patient and public involvement (PPI) in research and Health Technology Assessment (HTA), particularly methods of engagement and have taken a lead on this across seven European countries in the INTEGRATE-HTA project. I have interests in both qualitative research and evidence synthesis.
