Tooled Up’s Head of Research Nominated for ACAMH 2023 Award

Exciting news! It seems apt that in the same week as Research Appreciation Day, our very own Dr Hope Christie has been nominated for the prestigious Eric Taylor ‘Translational Research into Practice’ award. This award recognises individuals with a sustained contribution to translating research into practice over a number of years, whose work involves both research and involvement in either clinical or educational practice.

Dr Christie, who joined Tooled Up as Head of Research in March this year, worked on a significant project during the pandemic, which was commissioned by the Department for Education and SAGE (Scientific Advisory Group for Emergencies). She was part of a team which carried out a rapid evidence review to investigate the impact of COVID-19 pandemic, lockdown restrictions and school closures on parents and carers within the United Kingdom. 

The findings of this project played a vital role in shaping future emergency planning by a number of national governments. It’s important to note that this achievement was the result of the collaborative efforts of Dr Christie’s incredible colleagues, Dr Lucy Hiscox, Professor Sarah Halligan and Professor Cathy Creswell.

Dr Christie says, “I’m grateful for this recognition and proud to be part of the translational research community. Together, we strive to make a positive impact on clinical service provision, improving existing interventions and developing new ones. Thank you all for your support and encouragement along this incredible journey!”
