Laura Kelly is a Research Officer in Outcomes Measurement in the Health Services Research Unit. Laura has interests in research methodology, psychometric measure development, e-health and experiences of health. She is currently working on a number of projects including the development of a Patient-Reported Outcome Measure for a range of long-term conditions and the development of an instrument to assess self-management in people with type 2 diabetes using computer-based interventions. She is also involved in research regarding the use of patient reported outcomes in clinical care.
