Catherine Hodge

Researcher

‘I am excited at the prospect of using my research skills to draw together policy recommendations that have the potential to contribute to significant change and improvement for patients and populations. It is great to work somewhere where these people are the reason for the research.’

 

Catherine joined The Health Policy Partnership in October 2020 as a Researcher. She currently works on the All.Can Efficiency Hub oncology project and is a member of the team providing secretariat to the Heart Failure Policy Network.

Before joining HPP, Catherine worked as a Research Assistant at University College London, conducting fieldwork on zoonotic disease risk in Ethiopia. She has co-authored several peer-reviewed publications, including on developing participatory research methodologies in zoonotic disease-related research.

She also has experience of working on community mental health projects in post-conflict areas of sub-Saharan Africa through her role at the NGO Network for Africa, where she was responsible for developing and applying monitoring, evaluation and learning systems.

Catherine has a long-standing interest in palliative care, as well as in the role that qualitative research and patient involvement can play in the development of health policy.
