Biography

Vikki Entwistle re-joined the Health Services Research Unit in 2013 as Professor of Health Services Research and Ethics.

Vikki started her academic career in health services research as a research fellow at the NHS Centre for Reviews and Dissemination at the University of York (1994-1998). She then joined the Unit on a Leverhulme Trust Fellowship relating to patients’ participation in treatment decision-making. Vikki spent 2003-2004 as a Harkness Fellow at Harvard School of Public Health developing work on patients’ contributions to healthcare safety. She worked in the Unit, as Senior Research Fellow then Reader, until September 2005 when she moved to the Social Dimensions of Health Institute at the Universities of Dundee and St Andrews as part of the Alliance for Self Care Research. She was promoted in 2007 to Professor of Values in Healthcare.

Vikki has served on various research/policy committees. She was Editor of Health Expectations from 2007-2010

Research Interests

In broad terms, my research is about values and ethics in health policy and health service provision. I use a variety of approaches, and am keen to encourage the use of philosophy alongside careful investigations of practice and experience to support improvements to policy and practice.

Some of my work relates to 'person centred care' and associated concepts such as autonomy, paternalism, respect, health literacy, patient enablement, shared decision-making and support for self-management. I'm particularly interested in how these concepts are understood, valued and reflected in practice, and in questions of how they can be related to the safety, effectiveness and fairness of health service provision. 

Another strong current interest is in exploring applications of capabilities approaches to quality of life assessment for the ethical evaluation and development of public health and social care policy and research. 

I am also developing work on ethical questions about the management of infertility. 

I am always willing to discuss potential PhD supervisions and postdoctoral mentoring arrangements within these broad areas. Please contact me at the e-mail address shown above or enquire at the Graduate School http://www.abdn.ac.uk/clsm/graduate/research/index.php

Current Research

I collaborate on a range of projects. Two projects that I am currently enjoying leading are:  

The Health Foundation funded Concept:SSM project. This is being conducted in collaboration with colleagues from King's College London and the University of York. It aims to develop more practically relevant and ethically appopriate ways of thinking about how health and social care staff can help people to manage and live well with long term conditions.

An NHS Grampian funded project to explore health professionals' experiences of, and views about, sharing health care decisions with adults with mild to moderate learning disabilities. This project is closely linked to Anna Sierawska's doctoral studies, which I am supervising.
