Dr Lisa Schölin
Research Fellow, Nursing Studies
Lisa trained in public health at University of Mälardalen and in research methods at Örebro in Sweden before coming to the UK in 2011 to study towards an MSc in Public Health at University of Chester. Following her MSc, Lisa secured a funded PhD studentship at Liverpool John Moores University. Her PhD thesis was entitled “Absolute abstinence? A mixed methods study of alcohol use during pregnancy among parents and midwives in England and Sweden”, which adopted a cross-cultural perspective to practices and perceptions around alcohol use during pregnancy.
Lisa’s current work is a participatory action research-based study on recovery, with the aim to explore the ‘active ingredients’ in sustained recovery from alcohol dependence. The study uses photovoice methodology and focuses on capturing the stories of people in recovery to inform policy and practice around supporting people out of addiction.
Lisa is a Visiting Research Fellow at the Public Health Institute at Liverpool John Moores University.
