Alcohol Occasionals 2022 - ‘I’m just getting the impression I have to sort myself out’: How people with co-occurring heavy alcohol use and depression describe the care they receive in a fragmented health system - a qualitative study

Join us online on Tuesday 21 June from 12.30-14.00 BST for our fourth and final SHAAP/SARN Alcohol Occasionals event of 2022.

Dr Kat Jackson and Dr Amy O’Donnell will present "I’m just getting the impression I have to sort myself out’: How people with co-occurring heavy alcohol use and depression describe the care they receive in a fragmented health system - a qualitative study" and we will then open to Q+A and wider discussion.

Dr Kat Jackson is a Research Associate and Early Career Researcher in the Population Health Sciences Institute at Newcastle University. She is a health services researcher with a background in sociology. Her research has mostly focused on women’s alcohol use and / or mental health, and developing interventions to reduce health inequalities with stakeholders themselves. Kat is also interested in ethics in practice in research about sensitive and emotionally demanding topics. She is currently a co-convenor of the British Sociological Association (BSA) Alcohol Study Group. Her Twitter handle is @KatJ79

Dr Amy O’Donnell is a NIHR Advanced Fellow and Lecturer in Public Health at the Population Health Sciences Institute, Newcastle University. Her research programme aims to improve provision of appropriate care for people with multiple complex needs, with a specific focus on substance misuse and mental illness, via three broad strands of activity: 1) new models of care and care delivery; 2) theory-informed implementation and evaluation; and 3) user-led research and intervention development. Alongside the NIHR ADEPT study, which explores the potential for using digital technology to improve care navigation for heavy drinkers with depression, she also co-leads an evaluation of the North East and North Cumbria Alcohol Recovery Navigators, is implementation lead for a NIHR ARC National Priority Area evaluation of Wakefield District Housing Mental Health Navigators, and is co-investigator on a Legal & General-funded research collaboration with Edinburgh University (Advanced Care Research Centre), where she co-leads activities to develop new models of care for older adults with complex needs. Amy’s twitter handle is @AmyJaneODonnell.

The webinar will be hosted online using Zoom, and registrants will receive a link to join.

Alcohol Occasionals are free to attend and open to all, and our audience is diverse, including academics/researchers, healthcare professionals, policy-makers and members of the public.
