Patient experience is one of the three pillars of quality of care, along with safety and effectiveness, and an important tool to shape policy and improve patient care. Patient experiences research is now commonplace in high-income countries. Yet similar research in other settings is often lacking. How can capacity be built for conducting and learning from patient experience research in low- and middle-income countries, and what are some of the challenges of undertaking such research in these settings? In this talk, Dr Lisa Hinton will discuss her research in Kenya exploring the experiences of mothers of preterm babies, and consider how we can use this research to improve the provision of maternal and neonatal care in these settings.

Our speaker: Dr Lisa Hinton is a medical sociologist and a Senior Research Associate at THIS Institute, leading applied research programmes with a focus on maternity safety. Lisa has a degree in Social and Political Sciences from the University of Cambridge, and a DPhil in Medical Sociology from the University of Oxford. She was previously Director of Applied Research for the Health Experiences Research Group in the Nuffield Department of Primary Care in Oxford where she worked from 2010-2019. Lisa’s programme of work is focused on using applied social science research to understand patient and staff experiences and improve care. Her research specialises in pregnancy, childbirth, maternal morbidity, and neonatal intensive care. She uses innovative qualitative health research to develop and evaluate complex interventions and to inform health policy and service improvement.
