Hema Chaplin

Patient and Public Co-ordinator

Biography

My professional involvement and interest has been focused on health psychology and health services research; particularly the impact and involvement of patients and the public in designing and prioritising research projects to improve the quality and focus of research, using participatory research methods. My recent focus involves applying these interests to the area of Rheumatology during both my PhD (2017-2023) and MSc (2016-2017) here at KCL, where I have focused on persistent symptoms and/or inflammation despite treatment in adult-onset and juvenile onset inflammatory arthritis.

However, I am broadly interested in involving patients and the public across conditions and age groups in health services research and public engagement activities. Involving patients and the public should be at the core of all research and their involvement in the implementation and improvement stages are particularly vital.
