Dr Becky Field is a research associate in Health Economics and Decision Science (HEDS) working as a qualitative researcher on the SIPHER (Systems Science in Public Health and Health Economic Research) consortium at the University of Sheffield. The consortium, funded by the UK Prevention Research Partnership, aims to provide insight into how people value different policy and societal outcomes affecting health and well-being.
Becky completed a PhD in June 2020 focused on acceptance and rejection of psychosocial interventions by people living with early dementia after diagnosis.
Prior to joining ScHARR, Becky was employed as a state registered occupational therapist in the National Health Service (NHS), and has worked in a variety of clinical settings, but mostly in community brain injury rehabilitation.
Becky’s research interests are how public policy and health services can support health and well-being, particularly in relation to dementia, older people, active aging and occupational therapy.
