Research

Dr Lauralie Richard is a Research Fellow at the Department of General Practice and Rural Health, Dunedin School of Medicine.

Lauralie completed a PhD in Nursing (2014, Université de Montréal, Canada) and a 2-year postdoctoral research fellowship at the Department of General Practice, University of Melbourne, Australia (2014-2016). Lauralie maintains strong collaborations within international research networks. She holds ongoing honorary University appointments at the Faculty of Nursing, Université de Montréal (Honorary Associate Professor), and the Department of General Practice, University of Melbourne (Honorary Research Fellow).

Lauralie conducts health care delivery research – both primary empirical research and evidence synthesis – using a range of qualitative and mixed research methodologies. Her research expertise covers:

  • Innovative service delivery models to promote health equity for people with high and complex needs
  • Access to health care and service integration for vulnerable populations
  • Health care delivery to refugees and migrants

Her key methodological interests include innovative implementation research methodologies and developments in qualitative research designs and methods, including stakeholder engagement and co-design approaches. She has particular expertise in visualisation methods to study health care network integration, timeline mapping of complex health care experiences and patients’ journeys, qualitative process evaluations in trials of complex interventions, realist evaluation designs and methods, as well as evidence synthesis. Her theoretical interests cover the use of social and critical theory to support analysis of complex health care interventions and strengthen research designs.

Current and previous funded research projects as Principal Investigator include:

  • "Delivering primary health care to refugees in New Zealand’s Southern Health District: a qualitative study" (Dean's Bequest, University of Otago)
  • "Refugee health delivery in the Southern Health District: an innovative qualitative study involving research co-design" (University of Otago Research Grant)
  • "Understanding health needs and ways of doing culturally responsive research with people from refugee backgrounds" (Health Care Otago Charitable Trust)
  • "Teleconsulting for Inflammatory Bowel Disease in rural areas of the Southern Health District: qualitative process evaluation of an effectiveness Randomised Controlled Trial and interview study of adults with Inflammatory Bowel Disease" (Health Care Otago Charitable Trust)
