Dr Peter Coventry - research

Research interests

Expertise in the design and evaluation of complex interventions to support cost-effective management of psychosocial morbidity in people with long term conditions (LTCs).

Collaborative care, self-care, and psychological interventions (including novel interventions such as mindfulness) are among key themes that underscore his current work in primary care mental health research. He is the Principal Investigator for a cluster randomised controlled trial that tested the cost-effectiveness of collaborative care for treating depression in people with diabetes and/or coronary heart disease.

He also has a track record in evidence snythesis and qualitative research. Highlights include Cochrane reviews and a RCGP prize winning qualitative study about the barriers to mental health care for people with long term conditions.

Peter is also a member of the NIHR School of Primary Care Research (SPCR) and contributes to work on coordination of care and supporting self-care for people with multimorbidity, especially mental-physical multimorbidity. Current SPCR work includes a multi-site randomised controlled trial of a nurse led telephone self-management intervention for early phase COPD, and an individual participant data meta-analysis of the effectiveness of collaborative care for depression and anxiety.
