Welcome to my website!
Hello, I'm Cathy Lloyd and I'm Professor of Health Studies in the School of Health, Wellbeing & Social care, Faculty of Wellbeing, Education & Language Studies (WELS), at the Open University. My academic background is in public health and epidemiology, and I'm particularly interested in peoples' experiences of long term conditions, especially diabetes and psychological well-being. The other strand of my work focuses on service-user involvement in research, particularly promoting the inclusion of those whose first language is not English or is not written, but only spoken.
Follow-up data collection for INTERPRET-DD is now underway!
The baseline data collection for this international study on the prevalence and treatment of diabetes and depression has now closed. Follow-up data collection continues. Our first paper, describing the protocol, has been published in Diabetic Medicine:
