Jason is a postdoctoral research fellow currently researching the utility of a compassionate care Massive Open Online Course (MOOC) for knowledge mobilisation, and the quality and safety of prescribing in primary care using quantitative and qualitative techniques.
His research projects have involved a range of research methods including systematic reviews (including meta-analyses), randomised controlled trials, and qualitative studies (thematic, grounded theory and interpretative phenomenological analysis) and he has experience in the evaluation and implementation of evidence-based behaviour change strategies.
His other interests include self-directed interventions to promote weight loss and maintenance. Such interventions can take the form of internet programmes, leaflets, pedometer, DVD sets, text messaging and multicomponent programmes, and if effective, these self-directed modes are likely to be more cost-effective than interventions delivered in group or face-to-face settings which often depend on professional contact and other costly resources.
