Veronika Williams

PhD BSc (Hons) RGN

Departmental Lecturer and Senior Research Fellow

  • Co-Director DPhil EBHC programme

I have a background in respiratory nursing and my research focuses on the experiences of people living with a long-term condition (with a particular interest in chronic respiratory disease and older people) and how we can support their self-management and health care needs with a focus on digital health.

I am currently the co-director of the DPhil EBHC programme, working with Prof Carl Heneghan and the CEBM team and teach and supervise both Msc and DPhil students on the EBHC programmes. 

My research predominately involves qualitative research methods, but I also have expertise in conducting qualitative studies embedded within clinical trials and mixed methods research. I work on a number of existing digital health projects, including a randomised trial of an internet-based intervention to promote mental well-being in the general population (SocWell) and a HS&DR funded project on improving NHS Quality Using Internet Ratings and Experiences (INQUIRE) with Prof Powell; and SummiT-D, a NIHR PGfAR funded research programme developing and evaluating a mobile messaging support system for medication adherence in type 2 diabetes. 

I teach on several modules on the MSc EBHC on qualitative and mixed methods and supervise MSc and DPhil students in the department.
