Sonya Crowe awarded Improvement Science Fellowship by the Health Foundation!

4 February 2013

Dr Sonya Crowe of CORU has been awarded an Improvement Science Fellowship by the Health Foundation, one of five appointments to develop and champion a rigorous, scientific approach to improving the quality of healthcare in the emerging field of improvement science. Sonya will be mentored by Martin Utley and by Professor Naomi Fulop of the UCL Department of Applied Health Research and is funded for three years from March 2013, one of several collaborative endeavours between these groups.

During her fellowship, Sonya will work with a team at Great Ormond Street Hospital to look at ways of improving outcomes for infants once they’ve returned home after cardiac surgery. She will contribute to the re-design of their post-hospital follow-up care by developing analytical models for exploring how limited resources can be targeted most effectively to infants with different levels of clinical and social risk.

Sonya will also study the role that this type of analysis plays in the complex decision-making process of designing a better service and aims to identify ways of improving how operational research is conducted. She is hoping her improvement science fellowship will grant her the opportunity to learn from complementary disciplines and discover new ways of translating analytical solutions into real improvements for patients.
