Dr Lucy Webster

Senior Consultant

Lucy is a mixed-methods researcher, specialising in dementia, mental health and social care research. She has a PhD from the Division of Psychiatry, University College London (UCL), which investigated the impact that sleep disturbances have on people with dementia who are living in care homes. She also has a MSc in Clinical Mental Health Sciences from UCL and a BSc in Neuropsychology from the University of Central Lancashire.

   

Her expertise includes project managing systematic reviews, and qualitative and quantitative research projects, as well as recruiting participants, collecting and analysing data, and engaging with a range of stakeholders. She is also a co-applicant on a National Institute for Health and Care Research funded RCT of a psychological intervention to improve sleep disturbances in people living with dementia.

Before joining Cordis Bright, Lucy worked in academic health and social care research from a Research Assistant to a Research Fellow. She has also worked and volunteered in various health and social care settings with people with dementia, mental health problems, family carers, and learning disabilities.

Examples of recent projects include:

  • Piloting and evaluating how health and social care data can be digitalised and linked across the care home sector, and developing a minimum dataset for older adult care homes.
  • Evaluation of a psychological intervention to improve sleep disturbances in people with dementia in a RCT.
  • Qualitative exploration of how living with multiple long-term conditions, alongside dementia, affects the implementation of a psychological intervention for sleep disturbances.
  • Co-designing and evaluating how to make a quality of life outcome measure more suitable for self-reporting in people with dementia.
  • Culturally adapting a psychological intervention for dementia carers from Black and South Asian communities, and evaluating the feasibility and acceptability of this adaptation.

Lucy joins the team on 16 October 2023.
