Dr Sheela Tripathee is a Research fellow at the Academic Urology Unit at University of Aberdeen. Sheela joined AUU in January 2019. She has previously worked at University of Dundee and the Rockefeller University New York.
Sheela's current research focus is on how health systems and context impact health behaviour change and health outcome.
She is currently working in NIHR-funded ‘CATHETER II Randomized Control Trial' exploring patients’ experience of living with long-term catheter and various catheter washout policies, and health care professionals' perception of ‘Catheter II’ trial delivery and outcomes.
She is also working on the PIONEER WP2 study to explore treatment outcomes that matter most to patients with advanced prostate cancer in order to inform the development of prostate cancer Core Outcome Sets.
Sheela is leading the GCRF funded 'Increasing participation in breast cancer screening and treatment in Nepal' project. ICANTREAT Nepal aims to create a firm foundation of knowledge and data in cancer care in Nepal through data audit and stakeholders engagement.
Sheela has expertise in qualitative methods and evidence synthesis. Her previous work focused on review of health policies, and effectiveness of health interventions. She has collaborated with universities and institutions across the UK, Europe, USA, Canada, India and Nepal. She advocates patient and public involvement in health research, policy and care.
