The role of community-based support for improving quality-of-life outcomes

About the Speaker

Dr Caroline Potter, University of Oxford

Caroline joined the Oxford Institute of Population Ageing in 2022 as a Senior Research Fellow in Health and Social Care. A medical anthropologist with expertise in qualitative and mixed-methods health research, her research explores practices of care and provision of health services at both personal and population levels. Within the Institute Caroline is part of an expanding research team working to develop new models of person-centred care that draw on inter-generational relationships to empower older people.

Before joining the Institute Caroline was a Senior Research Fellow in the Health Services Research Unit at Oxford Population Health. At HSRU her work focused on evaluating how health and care services affect quality of life for people living with long-term health conditions. Caroline played a key role in developing the Long-Term Conditions Questionnaire, a patient-reported outcome measure for ‘living well with long-term health conditions’, and she led further development of LTCQ for use by people with dementia and informal (family) carers. Caroline works within the NIHR Applied Research Collaboration for Oxford and the Thames Valley, for which she is a deputy theme lead of research for ‘Improving health and social care in the community’.
