Julia is a qualitative methodologist.  She has experience of using in-depth interviews, focus groups and observations across a range of health services research contexts, with a particular interest in the application of qualitative methodologies within randomised controlled trials.  Her current research interests include optimising recruiter communication and patient understanding for informed consent during trial recruitment; communication of trial findings to patients, clinicians and policy makers; and patient experiences of receiving active monitoring/surveillance, surgery and radiotherapy treatments for localised prostate cancer. 

Her research forms part of work conducted by the Qualitative research integrated within Trials (QuinteT) team of researchers, which pioneers qualitative approaches to optimise recruitment and informed consent to randomised controlled trials (RCTs); and the MRC Hubs for Trials Methodology Research ConDuCT-II (COllaboration and iNnovation in DifficUlt or Complex randomised controlled trials In Invasive procedures) Hub (http://www.bristol.ac.uk/social-community-medicine/centres/conduct2/) at the University of Bristol.
