Katie Reed




In 1984 and 1986 she qualified as a nurse and midwife in the UK. From 1987–89 she worked as a midwife and nurse practitioner in the Canadian sub arctic. Then she returned to the UK to take an MSc in Health Promotion which she received in 1991. Her dissertation involved conducting a Knowledge, attitudes and practice study concerning malaria and mosquito net use in Kenya. She then spent the next eight years entirely concerned with malaria control, mostly in sub Saharan Africa. In 1999 she retuned to the UK to take up a five year Research Fellowship at the University of Manchester, where she completed a PhD examining the factors affecting the recruitment and retention of practice and district nurses in the UK. Alongside this she worked as a practice nurse in a large inner city practice in Manchester, where she specialised in substance misuse, chronic diseases and travel health.

From Nov 2005 she worked on a Master in research course until she was appointed course leader of the MPH/MRes in May 2006. She feel strongly that online courses can help health workers and others to increase their understanding and application of public health and research skills. In particular she is committed to improving the access of students from developing countries to appropriate and high quality higher education opportunities.
