Miss Kirsty Garfield
Senior Research Associate in Health EconomicsBristol Medical School (PHS)
Kirsty is a senior research associate in health economics at the Bristol Trials Centre and Health Economics at Bristol. She has experience in conducting applied economic evaluations alongside a wide range of randomised controlled trials. The trials she has worked on have been conducted in a variety of settings, including primary and secondary care and the community. They span many areas, from dermatology to prostate cancer and physical activity. Kirsty is currently working on the Athena, Prepare for Kidney Care and BEE trials.
Kirsty’s research interests are in trials and trials methodology research. In 2017, Kirsty obtained a PhD studentship from the NIHR Hubs for Trials Methodology Research. The aim of her PhD is to develop and perform initial validation of the healthcare module of a new generic modular resource-use measure (ModRUM). Following on from this research, Kirsty is currently working on an NIHR RfPB grant to develop social care, informal care and personal expense modules for ModRUM.
