Social Work

Personal statement

Emma Miller has been a senior research associate at Strathclyde since 2012, and was previously attached on an honorary basis from 2009. Emma has a background in social work practice, and interagency working. Since completing her PhD in 2004 she has worked between research, policy and practice on the theme of personal outcomes. Based on knowledge exchange and action research, this has focused on embedding an outcomes approach to practice, and has involved partnership between a wide range of national bodies and local organisations to re-orient culture, systems and practice accordingly. The primary purpose of this work is to support outcomes focused and person centred engagement at the frontline, with a secondary purpose to measure outcomes and use this information for service planning and improvements. In the past few years the work has drawn increasing interest from wider UK and international universities and agencies
