New research partnership on women’s creative health
Added on Tuesday, October 12th, 2021
The institute’s Kerry Wilson is working with the Improving Me network, a partnership of 27 NHS organisations across Cheshire and Merseyside aiming to improve the experience of women and children, to develop a women’s creative health research agenda for the Liverpool City Region.
As part of this work, she has developed an evaluation framework for a pilot Lullaby programme, which has been commissioned by Improving Me and will be delivered by Live Music Now in the North West from September 2021. Pioneered by Carnegie Hall in New York, Lullaby pairs new mothers with professional musicians to compose personal lullabies for their babies, in support of perinatal and postnatal mental health.
She will also be supporting the strategic development of an extended women’s creative health research network through her role as Co-Lead of the Social Innovation theme for the Institute for Health Research at Liverpool John Moores University.
