Dr Stuart Spicer
PenARC Research Fellow
Peninsula Medical School (Faculty of Health)
I am a researcher in applied healthcare. My current role is Research Fellow at PenARC (NIHR Applied Research Collaboration - South West Peninsula), and I am also part of the Community & Primary Care Research Group. I am currently involved in several research projects, predominantly within mental health, frailty and dementia. I have an interest in overprescribing (of medication prescribed for pain and mental health) and socio-ecomonic inequality. My published research from previous projects encompasses both applied and cognitive psychology. This includes research into problem gambling, video game loot boxes, and associative learning - areas in which I maintain an active research interest. My methodological background is in quantitative research, although I now work mainly in mixed-methods settings.
