Miss Shannon Costello

Research student


I am a HCRW-funded PhD student conducting research on how recording patient observations using novel mobile technology in Wales affects clinicians and the multi-disciplinary team.

Prior to this role, I completed a BSc in Social Work at Northumbria University, where I developed an interest in adult social work, and a MSc in Ageing Health and Disease at Cardiff University. 


Through my undergraduate and postgraduate education I have developed interests in the education and professional relationships of health and social care professionals, the lived experience of older people and their support network, and the 'gap' between health and social care.

As part of my postgraduate education I developed experience in conducting a systematic review for my dissertation which illustrated the experience of bereavement on carers of people with dementia.


Using mobile technology to record patient observations: impact on care management and clinical practice.
