Megan has a keen interest in Older People's Medicine, having worked as a nursing assistant during her time studying on an OPM ward and most of her research to date has focused on physical activity and dementia. Her PhD research focuses on integrated care in nursing home environments, where the aim is to optimize the use of integrated care following a tri-national, multi-case study. While Megan will primarily be based in Basel for her PhD research, data collection will take place in Switzerland, Germany and The Netherlands, where she will also gain valuable first-hand experience of nursing homes across Europe.
On 13 March 2023, Megan Davies successfully defended her PhD thesis entitled "Tri-national ethnographic multi-case study of person-centred care and quality of life in long-term residential care”.More details.
