East Anglia - Unversity of East Anglia - Department of Primary Care

Our research combines clinical, epidemiological and social sciences to extend knowledge that addresses the core challenges of primary care. We focus our research on patient needs, working both with quantitative and qualitative approaches, and addressing issues both at the level of individual patients and populations. Some key current research areas are: health literacy and the consequences of diagnosis for predictive medicine, quality of care and relevance of guideline evidence to primary care, effectiveness of screening interventions, impacts of patient and public involvement, models of disability, and the ethics of reproductive technologies.
