    Research Statement

    Professor Christine Brown Wilson is a Registered Nurse with an international research profile in Ageing and Dementia focusing on practice development in residential, community and acute contexts. Christine's methodological expertise lies in qualitative methodologies including working collaboratively with older people, including people with dementia, their families and staff to improve practice. She has established links with industry and service user organisations in the UK enabling older people, family caregivers and staff to be active participants in the research process. Christine has supported organisations and teams in changing practice through quality improvement workshops and developing relationship centred services in dementia care both in the UK, Australia and Singapore. Through this process, Christine has developed relationship based strategies that can be embedded at all levels of an organisation including a facilitated model of practice development that supports staff in identifying practical strategies to implement person centred care. This work has led to invited presentations and workshops in the UK, North America, Asia and Australia.
