Rosie’s research looks at the use of mobile technology to deliver health and support to people in their everyday lives. A background in health psychology has led her to investigate ways in which patients can be supported outside the clinic environment to increase the reach of supportive care, behavioral interventions and psycho-education. She has been involved in the development and trial of a text-message based diabetes self-management programme for people with poorly controlled diabetes. Other work includes the development and implementation of a maternal health text-message information and support programme.
