Eileen Calveley

Research Fellow

After gaining an MSc in Health Psychology, Eileen has worked for NMAHP-RU for 4 years on a number of projects.  Currently evaluating a pilot web-based GP Consultation system using qualitative methods, previous projects have included: the pilot study of the Person-Centred Assessment Method (PCAM), exploring the feasibility and acceptability of a primary care nurse-led assessment tool to identify mental health issues and encourage behavioural change in patients with long term conditions; investigating mothers’ perceptions of their need for continuity of midwifery care in the maternity period; evaluating the impact and effectiveness of the pilot Aberlour Perinatal Befriending Support service; and a feasibility study of Recovery models in comparison with Mindfulness-based Cognitive Therapy for managing recurring depression.

Research interests include promoting behavioural change in people with long term conditions and the relationship between mental and physical health issues.  Eileen is currently undertaking a distance-learning taught PhD in Organisational Health & Wellbeing at Lancaster University.
