Following a first career in community nursing Louise has worked in health and social care research since 2003 and was awarded a PhD in primary care and population sciences in 2009 with her thesis 'A mixed methods study to explore interagency working to support the health of people who are homeless'. Her research interests are homelessness and social exclusion; delivery of health care to people who are homeless; interprofessional and interagency working; and new models and roles in delivering health and social care.
Work with the SCWRU has included the ESRC funded study: Rethinking multiple exclusion homelessness: implications for workforce development and interprofessional practice. Louise is currently co-investigator on the School of Social Care Research funded study Rebuilding Lives: supporting formerly homeless people to achieve independent living. She is also working on a study investigating service provision for older people who are homeless and have memory problems.
