Amadea Turk

BSc, MSc


I have worked in Primary Care research since graduating with an MSc in Medical Anthropology from the University of Oxford. I have worked on projects relating to digital health in primary care. These include exploring the potential of online patient feedback to drive health service improvements; the development of a digital platform to support older carers; and a systematic review of two-way digital communication for the management of diabetes in children and adolescents.I have also been involved in a number of projects on Patient and Public Involvement. 

I lead a realist review as part of the NIHR HTA funded Tailor Medication Synthesis project. The project aims to explore the optimising of a whole-person-centred approach to stopping medicines in older people with multimorbidity and polypharmacy.

I am also involved in a programme of work around social prescribing. I have a strong interest in the role primary care plays in addressing health inequalities through action on social determinants of health.

As part of my role I contribute to the coordination and facilitation of the Undergraduate Medical School Evidence-Based Medicine Course. I am also the programme manager of the NIHR SPCR Evidence Synthesis Working Group.
