- Miscellaneous Information
Diana was the ARC KSS Darzi Fellow (2021-22). She was an Occupational Therapist with over 20 years' experience who undertook her PhD at The University of Brighton and her thesis explored the lived experience of paid work for people with intellectual and developmental disabilities.
Diana has a strong belief in applied research being a core part of clinical practice, co-produced with the population being supported. She greatly enjoyed the opportunities offered to her through the fellowship, to work in partnership with the many members of the ARC KSS to support their vision to empower and stimulate NHS health and social care professionals and NHS organisations to grow their research activity and capacity. During her fellowship year she created, in partnership and with the support of others in KSS 'The Good Lives Research Network' and 'Your Quick Guide to H&SC Research'.
She continues her connection with the ARC KSS as part of Sussex Partnership NHS Foundation Trust in her role as Professional Lead for Allied Health Professions in CAMHS & Specialist Services.
