On 19th April, Dr Greg Whitley gave the seminar “Designing a complex intervention development study: experiences from a post-doctoral fellowship application”.
Greg was recently awarded a prestigious Advanced Clinical and Practitioner Academic Fellowship (ACAF), making him the first paramedic in England to receive a HEE/NIHR funded postdoctoral fellowship. The seminar discussed Greg’s experiences of developing a post-doctoral fellowship application, with a specific focus on designing a study that aimed to develop and test a complex intervention. Key aspects of complex intervention study design were covered, such as patient and public involvement, time and resources needed, along with a discussion of key literature, including the new 2021 Medical Research Council complex intervention development guidance.
