Brief Description of Work:
HEXI is a unique, interdisciplinary research institute dedicated to the understanding of experiences of health, illness and healthcare, using this understanding to transform care through influencing policy, practice and education. We intend this focus to support the continued development of person centred research, innovation and service delivery.
The Institute is a joint initiative between the University’s Department of Primary Care Health Sciences and Green Templeton College. It is founded on relationships between key research groups within the University, bringing together different research approaches. The Health Experiences Research Group (HERG) and the Health Services Research Group (HSRU) are the core of this collaboration.
