Dr Andrew Harding

Senior Research Associate

Profile

Dr Andrew Harding is an applied social scientist and Senior Research Associate at Lancaster University working on the ESRC/NIHR Neighbourhoods and Dementia programme. His primary role is on work programme 3, which is developing a core outcome set (COS) for non-pharmacological health and social care interventions for people living with dementia located in the community. As part of this study, Andrew has been part of an inter-disciplinary team that has developed an innovative core outcome set methodology in the field of dementia. This has included substantive consultation with people living with dementia in order to develop an accessible Delphi survey.

Andrew's research experience has mostly involved qualitative and mixed methods approaches with older people. His work has been published and cited across social/health policy, medical journals and policy reports/working papers. He has also presented at national and international conferences.

Prior to his role at Lancaster University, Andrew worked at the Faculty of Health & Social Sciences at Bournemouth University, where he completed his PhD – a realist evaluation of a housing options service relating to specialist housing for older people.
