Dr Harriet Hunt’s research focuses on complex interventions with a particular interest in how evidence is used in the real world.
Dr Hunt works on the Nature on Prescription project, developing and evaluating a handbook for nature-based interventions co-created with partner organisations including the Wildlife & Wetlands Trust.
She has a background in epidemiology and public health, and is interested in how we communicate and understand dynamic and incomplete information, complex data for public consumption, and presenting detailed information for different audiences.
Recent projects have included:
COVID-NURSE, a clinical trial of a complex behavioural intervention involving nursing care for patients infected with the SARS-CoV-2 virus with Professor Dave Richards at the Academy of Nursing.
ICON, evaluating evidence for interventions to improve continence in children and young people with neurodisability, and
PaReNt, exploring parent-to-parent support interventions for parents of babies cared for in neonatal units.
