Projects per year
Peter was awarded a 50th Anniversary Prize Fellowship at the University of Bath to pursue his research interests in theory grounded psychosocial and motivational processes that underpin the initiation and maintenance of physical activity in clinical settings.
Frameworks such as Self-determination Theory are used to inform the development of multi-disciplinary interventions that support the preventive, treatment and wellbeing benefits of regular physical activity. User centred interventions aim to enhance patient outcomes, increase quality of care, encourage self-management and improve cost-effectiveness.
Capitalising upon the nationally recognised Royal National Hospital for Rheumatic Diseases in Bath, Peter is establishing multidisciplinary collaborations that investigate how to support the maintenance of physical activity as a disease management strategy for patients with musculoskeletal conditions. His multidisciplinary research was recognised when identified as a future research leader and selected to attend the award winning GW4 Crucible programme.
Prior to working at the University of Bath, Peter completed his PhD at the University of Birmingham investigating the motivational mechanisms that support physical activity and wellbeing amongst exercise referral participants. Subsequently, Peter remained in Birmingham as a research fellow for an MRC funded randomised control trial testing an exercise intervention plus motivational support for patients with rheumatoid arthritis.
