CAPC researcher wins poster prize
24 November 2015
Mairead Murphy, a PhD student funded by the NIHR School for Primary Care Research, has won the Best Poster Prize at the University of Bristol's 6th Population Health Annual Symposium.
This annual event showcases the work across the University of Bristol’s Population Health research theme and draws attention to new research and collaborative possibilities.
Mairead is from the University of Bristol's Centre for Academic Primary Care and her poster presentation was entitled Development and Cognitive Testing of the PCOQ: A questionnaire to measure outcome in primary care. The poster described the development of the Primary Care Outcomes Questionnaire (PCOQ) a 27-item patient-reported outcome measure which seeks to capture outcomes important to primary care patients. Mairead developed this questionnaire as part of her PhD.
She is currently assessing the validity of the PCOQ on a sample of 600 patients, recruited in GP waiting rooms. She is due to complete her PhD, supervised by Chris Salisbury and Sandra Hollinghurst, in August 2016.
