Hannah Kendrick

I am a Research Officer at the Care Policy and Evaluation Centre at the London School of Economics and Political Science. I am currently working on an NIHR funded evaluation of the implementation and effectiveness of research-practice partnerships between academics and social care practitioners.  Prior to this role, I completed a PhD in Health and Organisational Research where I evaluated the implementation of health and social care integration policy at the local level.

My research interests include service and policy evaluation, integrated care, and research capacity building and evidence use within social care. I am also interested in applying sociological and organisational theory to study how managerial and organisational practices are shaped within political and structural contexts and what that means for everyday experiences, responses, and resistance of staff and those who use services.

I have methodological expertise in theory-based evaluation, critical discourse analysis, and qualitative/ethnographic research methods.
