Research interests

Sabrina Grant is a Research Fellow in the Musculoskeletal Research Unit at the University of Bristol.  She is a trained psychologist specialising in field of health, who applies a variety of mixed methodolgies (quantitative and qualitative) to a range of health conditions.  Her work has mainly been within primary care and is keen on interdisciplinary collaborations in research around areas of the self-management of long term conditions, health beliefs and behaviour, implementation of health technology and digital health and the patient-clinician interface.

Sabrina became a chartered member of the British Psychological Society in 2016 whilst working as a Research Fellow at the University of Birmingham and has now moved to the University of Bristol working within the EPSRC funded programme of work called SPHERE (http://www/  SPHERE stands for Sensor Platform of Healthcare in a Residential Environment.  SPHERE is working with clinicians, engineers, designers and social care professionals as well as members of the public to develop sensors for the home to diagnose and help manage health and well-being conditions. Sabrina is leading an embedded study within SPHERE called HEmiSPHERE, the Hip and Knee study of a Sensor Platform for Healthcare in a Residential Environment, Professor Rachael Gooberman-Hill (CI), which will assess the clinical value of this novel unobtrusive sensing technology in NHS patients awaiting elective surgery for primary hip or knee joint replacement. This is a linked study within the SPHERE 100 Homes Study at the University of Bristol led by the SPHERE-IRC group, director Professor Ian Craddock, in the Faculty of Engineering.

Her research and teaching interests are primarily around the application of health psychology within the self-management of chronic conditions, the patient-clinician interface and patient centred health information and strengthening links across primary and secondary care services.
