Dr Mark Pearson

Biography I joined the Wolfson Palliative Care Research Centre at Hull York Medical School in late 2017 as Senior Lecturer in Implementation Science & Knowledge Mobilisation. This means that I do research and teaching on how to get the best of what we know about treatments and care delivered in routine practice.

You can find a list of my published research here:
Research Interests I am a social scientist focusing on knowledge mobilisation and implementation issues in health and social services, in particular palliative care. My research focuses on how social, psychological and organisational factors interact and impact on how knowledge is used in practice. I use theory-driven methods to conduct research that informs both the development of interventions (the implementation and impact theories that underpin the ways in which complex interventions are proposed to work) and the evaluation of interventions (refining understanding of implementation mechanisms that are transferable across fields of practice).
