Title: The Power of activating personal social networks to manage health & well-being: optimising connections and mobilising resources

Presenter: Professor Anne Rogers

Date: Tuesday 29 March 2016

Time: 1pm lunch will be served 30mins beforehand

Venue: Yudowitz Seminar Room, Wolfson Medical School Building

Chair: Professor Frances Mair


It is increasingly recognised that  increasing the effective targeting and promotion of self-care support for long-term conditions requires a focus on patient contexts and networks.  This session aims to:

i) present evidence from  research which has explored how the power and capacity of personal networks can take the aspiration of self- management beyond the confines of traditional medical and health care settings.

ii)  present the development and implementation of  GENIE – a  webbased tool which comprises: network mapping; user-centred preference elicitation and need assessment; and facilitated engagement with resources


I am interested in supervising in the following areas with a focus on the use of qualitative methods: Sociological approaches to understanding and implementing long term condition management .Sociology of Mental Health and Illness, including cross-cultural analysis of stigma and approaches to managing mental health, Health Policy (Mental Health/Long term condition management). The role of weak ties and pets in long term condition management.
