Research

Jean's interests include (specifically) the management of continence problems, and (more broadly) illness perceptions/beliefs and how these might influence help seeking, coping, 'treatment' choices and treatment 'adherence'. With regard to research methodology, Jean has experience of highly quantitative designs (such as systematic review and meta-analysis, and randomised trials), observational designs (such as before and after studies) and more qualitative approaches (in particular, interpretative phenomological analysis). A special interest is mixed method research.
