I am currently undertaking a doctoral research project with Elderly Accommodation Counsel (EAC). Based in London, EAC coordinate the FirstStop service which provides information and advice to older people (and other stakeholders) on housing and care issues. My research is focused on older people's agency practices around use of FirstStop telephone information and advice on housing and what impact it has on their decision-making and associated outcomes.
This project reflects my wider research interests, on UK welfare markets/agency and builds on previous work on patient choice in the NHS and the personalisation agenda in social care.
After my MSc from the University of Southampton I was a research assistant in HSC from 2010 to 2013. I have experience in writing (and in some instances leading on) research proposals, research grants and undertaking research on informing health and social care practice. I also lead seminars on the MSc Public Health programme.
I am also the Founder, Journal Manager, Editor and a Section Editor of eBU: Online Journal - an internal BU working paper journal that works on the basis of immediate publication and open peer review... This aim of eBU is develop academic authorship. The primary function of eBU is that authors of any academic level can receive constructive feedback in a safe internal environment before being encouraged to submit to external journals.
I tweet under @AndrewJEHarding and also guest blog occasionally on various platforms.more
